Join YSRP and the Philadelphia Bar Association for Breakfast and Conversation with our Mandela Washington Fellow, Chikondi Mandala
From Death to JLWOP: A comparative discussion of Malawi’s elimination of mandatory death sentences and the United States’ elimination of mandatory sentences of life without parole for juveniles
In the past decade, the Malawian Constitutional Court has struck down mandatory death sentences as unconstitutional -- and the United States Supreme Court has struck down as unconstitutional mandatory sentences of life in prison without parole for juveniles. Please join Chikondi Mandala, senior resident magistrate with the Malawian judiciary and Mandela Washington Fellow at the Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP), for a comparative discussion of these momentous rulings, including the lessons learned from the efforts to implement them.
