The purpose of the paper is to identify areas for future research on topics involving the intersection of assessments of maturity and security concerns surrounding the release of juveniles and young adults germane to indeterminate-life sentences. It also critically analyzes distinctions in law that cannot be properly studied using traditional legal and psychological approaches for understanding variations in discretion involving questions of rehabilitation and security risks. In addition, it employs Black’s theory of the behavior of law and social control to introduce a «pure sociological» approach to examining variations in the microsociology of cases across societies and cultures. Reasons why Italy is a good case for testing the validity of Black’s theory for explaining variations in discretionary judgments are also considered.
