Editorial Reviews

Review

Too Big to Jail is a superb and comprehensive book, backed up by impressive original research. What is most striking, and most valuable, is that it drives home how amazingly new and bizarre is the current field of prosecuting corporations. (Samuel Buell, Duke University)

Garrett highlights the disconnect between how federal prosecutors treat drug, immigration, and other violators, and how they treat firms engaging in criminal conduct. This is the first serious effort to look across all corporate prosecutions and assess the government’s regulatory effectiveness. (Daniel Richman, Columbia University)

About the Author

Brandon L. Garrett is Roy L. and Rosamond Woodruff Morgan Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law.

More About the Author

Garrett teaches law at the University of Virginia School of Law, where he has been a professor since 2005. His research on our criminal justice system has ranged from the lessons to be learned from cases where innocent people were exonerated by DNA tests, to research on false confessions, forensics, and eyewitness memory, to the difficult compromises that prosecutors reach when targeting the largest corporations in the world.

In 2011, Harvard University Press published Garrett's book, "Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong," examining the cases of the first 250 people to be exonerated by DNA testing. That book was the subject of a symposium issue in New England Law Review, and received an A.B.A. Silver Gavel Award, Honorable Mention, and a Constitutional Commentary Award. It has been translated in Japan and Taiwan. In 2013, Foundation Press published a casebook, "Federal Habeas Corpus: Executive Detention and Post-Conviction Litigation," that co-authored with Lee Kovarsky. Garrett's new book examining corporate prosecutions, titled "Too Big to Jail: How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations," is forthcoming from Harvard University Press in Fall 2014.

Garrett lives in Charlottesville, Virginia with his wonderful family. In all of his spare time, he tries to paint.
