James Binnall

Dr. Binnall’s research focuses on the civic marginalization of those with criminal convictions, parole and post-release restrictions, and conditions of confinement.  His primary research focus examines the exclusion of individuals with a felony conviction from the jury process.  The nation’s leading scholar on the topic, Dr. Binnall has testified for the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, the California Senate and Assembly, and presented his research to the American Bar Association Jury Commission.  He has published numerous articles in both law reviews and social science journals, and is the author of the first book devoted to the issue of record-based juror exclusion: Twenty Million Angry Men: The Case for Including Convicted Felons in Our Jury Process (University of California Press, 2021).  At CSULB, Dr. Binnall is the Executive Director of Project Rebound and the Faculty Advisor for Rising Scholars – organizations that work to ensure the success of formerly incarcerated and system involved students on campus.  A practicing attorney, he also represents law students in the State Bar of California Moral Character and Fitness Determination process, and is the co-founder of the California System-Involved Bar Association (CSIBA) – an organization comprised entirely of formerly incarcerated or system involved lawyers.
