Evidence-Based Approaches to Juvenile Justice

Tuesday, July 19, 2016 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Learn from experts in the juvenile-justice field about the case for creation of a formal diversion system that would reduce the large number of low-level offenses prosecuted in court and discourage over-supervision and unnecessary confinement.  As the Legislature considers a comprehensive reform package (S. 2417) with their session heading to a close, this event will help shed light on evidence-based approaches to reform efforts in the juvenile-justice system.
 

This program is co-sponsored with Citizens for Juvenile Justice.

Speakers:

  • Hon. Jay D. Blitzman
    • Middlesex County Juvenile Court
  • Vincent Schiraldi
    • John F. Kennedy School of Government
