Few systems have a greater impact on the lives of children and on society than does the juvenile justice system. Urban youth enter this system during an extremely vulnerable time in their lives, when their still-developing brains and the personality characteristics common to adolescents expose them to unique risks. The stakes are high.
Please save the date for the University of Baltimore Center for Families, Children and the Courts’ fourth annual Urban Child Symposium, The Beginning or the End? The Urban Child’s Experience in the Juvenile Justice System, on April 12, 2012. Panelists will address the importance of balancing public safety with the unique needs of urban children in the juvenile justice system and will also explore how society should address those needs in its approach to juvenile criminal behavior.
The symposium will take place in the Venable Baetjer Howard Moot Court Room at the John and Frances Angelos Law Center (1415 Maryland Ave., Baltimore, MD 21201). There is no charge to attend the symposium, but advance registration is required.
Update as of March 25, 2012: Registration for the 2012 Urban Child Symposium is now closed. The Center for Families, Children and the Courts will be maintaining a waitlist for registrants who would like to attend if seats become available. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please send your name and email address to Eliza Mullen at email@example.com. You will be notified via email if a seat becomes available.
