They discussed advances made in understanding and applying emerging knowledge about juvenile justice issues, current gaps and opportunities across juvenile justice systems, best practices that have emerged through reform efforts like the MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change, and examples of judges exercising change leadership in their local and state communities to improve the administration of justice for court-involved youth.
The report resulting from that two-day Symposium is now available: What State Courts Can Do To Promote Juvenile Justice Reform.
