Post-conviction review, often considered a tangential area of criminal law, is progressing to the forefront in our criminal justice system. The growth in our nation’s prison population, the expansion of collateral consequences flowing from criminal convictions, and advances in forensic science, among other factors, make the law of post-conviction review increasingly relevant and compelling. For these reasons, this Symposium issue of the Maine Law Review, “Balancing Fairness with Finality: An Examination of Post-Conviction Review,” is both timely and important.
