A visit with S. David Mitchell, Associate Professor, School of Law

By LuAnne Roth
Published: - Topics: law law school sentencing felon disenfranchisement prisoner reentry

Courses Taught at MU

Topics: society legislation

Mitchell teaches a broad range of courses, including a criminal justice administration course that he describes as “bail to jail”; a class about torts, which involve civil wrongs; and one called Law and Society, which examines the social context behind the law. The latter course clearly reflects Mitchell’s background in sociology, which has influenced both his pedagogy and his research. In Collateral Consequences of Sentencing, he covers felon disenfranchisement, felon exclusion laws, and prisoner reentry.
