Intellectual Life Workshop: Alexis Karteron

Wednesday, March 10 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

Alexis Karteron
Associate Professor of Law, Rutgers Law
Civil rights & civil liberties, constitutional law

Professor Karteron will be presenting her paper, “Probation, Parole, and Family Separation.”

The Article explores the policies and practices of probation and parole agencies that separate families. Numerous such agencies condition the freedom of those they supervise on ending all contact with children and spouses. By imposing these extraordinary conditions, probation and parole authorities function as shadow family court judges, making custody decisions and sometimes effectively terminating parental rights without any expertise or the appropriate protections for both parents and children. When not justified to ensure safety, such restrictions constitute grievous infringements on the constitutional rights to parent children and to marry, and operate in contravention to probation and parole agencies’ supposed rehabilitative function.
