The Friday Wrap-up

Another Friday rolls around so quickly this week!  Time to clean off the desk again.

The big news is that I am off to a seminar in Chicago this weekend — “The Future of Law and Neuroscience” — sponsored by the ABA, MacArthur Foundation, Vanderbilt Law School, and the Gruter Institute.

The Juvenile Justice Research Hub has been launched through a partnership between the National Juvenile Justice Network, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange.  There is much that is still under construction, but it looks promising.

On May 8, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. ET, the National Center for Youth in Custody will present a webinar “Family Comes First:  Transforming the Justice System by Partnering with Families.”  Register here.

On April 30, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. ET, Reclaiming Futures will present a webinar “Reclaiming Futures:  A Model for Communities Helping Teens Overcome Drugs, Alcohol, and Crime.”  Register here.

On May 3, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. ET listen to the Spotlight on Youth radio show “Juvenile Justice is a Human Rights Issue.”

A little inspiration:  “I have lived my life and I have fought my battles, not against the weak and the poor — anybody can do that — but against power, against injustice, against oppression, and I have asked no odds from them, and I never shall.”  Clarence Darrow

Have a restful weekend.
