Jerroll is never deterred by claims that a goal is unattainable. Her ability to quickly analyze information, define the problem and the needed solution and then discern the path for achieving a goal is absolutely unparalleled.
Writer of a Federal Court Case of First Impression
Jerroll, a non-attorney, has an uncanny ability to parse through contracts and legal language with ease and find nuanced opportunities to achieve end goals. When esteemed Harvard Constitutional Lawyer Lawrence Tribe declared there was no provision in the constitution allowing for a revote of a federal election, Jerroll found one. A U.S. Appeals Court went on to identify the case Jerroll wrote as one of first impression—meaning Jerroll raised constitutional issues that had never before been presented in a U.S. Court of Law (Copyright Registration TX0008740984).
Drafter of Policing Legislation that—For the First Time Ever—Would Standardize Policing Nationwide
Until now, policing has been largely considered a state function. Jerroll drafted a national legislative proposal titled The Uniform Reporting Law Enforcement Improvement Act (URLEIA), which–for the first time ever–would bring state policing functions under the joint jurisdiction of the state and U.S. Government. URLEIA includes a host of detailed provisions that would completely revamp policing in the United States. It establishes a nationwide database that documents daily statistics characterizing the performance of law enforcement officers. It also establishes national standards for training, crime-scene management, police accountability, the use of force and much more. The proposal is hailed as the most comprehensive response to America’s policing problem and represents yet another instance in which Jerroll accomplished what professors and professionals said was impossible–namely a constitutionally sound framework for standardizing policing nationwide. Jerroll continues to lead a national effort to ensure that URLEIA becomes law.

Produced What Many Called the Best Taxpayer Notices in U.S. History.
Jerroll was called upon by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to undertake a project which IRS had no idea how to structure or even how to define in its scope of work. It needed to rewrite and redesign hundreds of poorly-written, confusing and mixed language taxpayer notices in keeping with the federal government’s new effort to convert written documents into plain language. Sanders’ work was applauded throughout the IRS; even the IRS Commissioner commented that it was an accomplishment of great magnitude. Every taxpayer notice currently in use in the United States now bears the mark of Jerroll’s work.
