Federal Sentencing Reporter was launched more than two decades ago by legal experts and scholars Daniel J. Freed and Marc L. Miller, in collaboration with the Vera Institute of Justice. It is the only academic journal in the United States that focuses on sentencing law, policy, and reform.

Federal Sentencing Reporter explores in detail the complex sector of sentencing law, practice, and theory. Along with the presentation of new ideas and viewpoints on existing legislation and sentencing guidelines, the journal examines questions of sentencing policy and the practical application of modern sentencing reforms. FSR is more than a law review—it is an invaluable resource for legal changes and current debate in the field of sentencing. Published five times annually, each issue features articles, cases, and other primary materials written by judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys, probation officers, scholars, and members of sentencing commissions. Federal Sentencing Reporter is a must-read for anyone interested in sentencing practices and theory, criminal law, and the U. S. Court system.
