 Youth Court Seminar 

sponsored by

The United States Attorney's Office, Eastern District of PA

co-sponsored by the

Youth Court Support Center (YCSC) at EducationWorks

&

Pennsylvania Bar Association

 

The seminar will feature remarks from a number of distinguished speakers: U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger will discuss Youth Courts as a preventative strategy to reduce juvenile crime and terminate the school-to-prison pipeline; Philadelphia City Council Majority Leader Curtis Jones, Jr. will explain the Youth Court resolution he introduced, and which was unanimously adopted by the Philadelphia City Council, which calls for Youth Court expansion; and Eva Gold, Founder of Research for Action and a nationally-recognized expert in the areas of civic and community engagement in school reform, will discuss her organization's recent evaluation of youth courts. Three panels of experienced youth court practitioners, law students, lawyers, educators, teachers, college students and other professionals will discuss why youth courts are both a preferred disciplinary system, and provide great promise as an academic, socialization, and civic engagement program for youth-particularly in low-income neighborhoods.

 

There is no charge to attend. For attorneys, one hour of ethics and one hour of substantive CLE from the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board has been approved.
