Trending Topics in Juvenile Justice Reform & Practice 2020

Product ID: CA3050W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Minor problems, no small task

Wisconsin’s motto may be “Forward,” but when it comes to racial and ethnic disparities within the juvenile justice system, the state’s statistics are among the worst in the nation. Compared to white youth, youth of color in Wisconsin are arrested and placed in the system at disproportionately higher rates.1

Trending Topics in Juvenile Justice Reform and Practice will examine the racial disparities and biases in Wisconsin’s legal and education systems, discuss ongoing reform efforts, and provide tailored ethics guidance and self-care tips for attorneys who represent minors in juvenile court matters.

In addition, you will:

  • Examine school suspensions and expulsion hearings
  • Understand how risk/needs assessments are used to identify and develop specialized treatment plans for high-risk youth
  • Explore reform efforts that advocate for rehabilitative vs. punitive approaches
  • Discuss unique ethical issues that can arise when representing minors
  • Hear from panelists about current local and national reform efforts
