Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works. In this episode, she talks with Michael L. Perlin, professor at New York Law School, about his book "A Prescription for Dignity: Rethinking Criminal Justice and Mental Disability Law." As he notes in the Introduction, "I have chosen to title this book "A Prescription for Dignity" because I believe that dignity must be at the core of the entire criminal justice system, and that its absence is even more jarring in cases involving defendants with mental disabilities. I also believe that serious consideration of the perspectives that I focus on in this work -- counsel, international human rights, mental health courts, and alternative jurisprudences -- will serve as a means of infusing more dignity into this process." http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com
