Juvenile Justice Forum

Juvenile Justice in New Jersey:
Building on Success to Improve Outcomes for Youth

This special forum will focus on ways to build on New Jersey’s successful juvenile justice reforms to help youth avoid involvement with the juvenile justice and that the system is responsive to those who do. The forum will feature state and national leaders in juvenile justice and related fields, as well as renowned professor Laurence Steinberg, nationally-recognized for his research on adolescent brain development.

A panel discussion will feature Juvenile Justice Commission Executive Director Kevin Brown, New Jersey Public Defender Joseph E. Krakora, Judge Glenn Grant, acting director of the Administrative Office of the Courts, Department of Children and Families Commissioner Allison Blake, Bart Lubow of the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Dr. Steinberg.
