Reforming the Juvenile Justice System: A Workshop for Change
April 26 & 27 2013 in Gainesville
Sponsored by the Center on Children & Families partnering with Harvard Law School and Georgetown.
This is an invitation only conference.
Professor Charles Ogletree will be our plenary speaker.
This conference is focused on critiques and reforms of the existing juvenile justice system. Our goal is to foster a conversation about system change, broadly defined, which may include topics as broad and wide-ranging as policy reforms, interrogating the narratives surrounding juvenile justice, innovative community based strategies, a focus on traditionally underrepresented populations, the role of counsel and parents in system reform, and/or therapeutic jurisprudence.

Racial Democracy and American Juvenile Justice
