The Legal Challenge to Corrections: Implications for Manpower and Training.
Workers in the field of corrections will find in this consultant's paper an examination of: (1) legal changes outside the area of the criminal process which have implications for corrections, (2) legal changes within the area of the criminal process, and (3) legal norms as a background for analyzing problems in the area of corrections. Intended as a ready reference, and as training material, the paper is elaborately documented. The five major sections concern: (1) the broad context of legal change in areas of governmental activity, (2) sentencing, (3) probation and parole, (4) imprisonment and the loss and restoration of civil rights, and (5) the juvenile correctional process. There is a pressing need for a model code of correctional procedure, and possible approaches to and some of the difficulties involved in the drafting of such a code are discussed.
