His research and teaching interests include criminal procedure, wrongful convictions, habeas corpus, corporate crime, scientific evidence, civil rights, civil procedure and constitutional law. Garrett’s recent research includes studies of DNA exonerations and organizational prosecutions. His most recent book is on the death penalty: ‘End of Its Rope How Killing the Death Penalty Can Revive Criminal Justice’.
