"If we are to keep our democracy, there must be one commandment: Thou shalt not ration justice." 
      Judge Learned Hand

Welcome to the Center for Legal and Evidence-Based Practices. If you saw our name in the AP story by Brian Melley, you will find more about the history of bail and the need for reform in the National Institute of Corrections publication, "Fundamentals of Bail," accessed through the tab on the left. 

But please also visit the website of the Pretrial Justice Institute in Washington, D.C. The staff at PJI are the "heavy lifters" of pretrial justice and reform in America, and they can help you with virtually any question you may have concerning this monumentally important national movement. 

Thank you! 

The CLEBP is a Colorado nonprofit corporation that strives to reform America's predominantly money-based bail system by promoting rational, fair, and transparent legal and evidence-based pretrial practices to achieve safer and more equitable communities as well as cost-effective government.
