Rethinking Conditions of Release

Are we punishing normative behavior?

Join Juvenile & Child Welfare Section Council Vice Chair Marlies Spanjaard for a series of live legal chats covering the issues impacting the practice of juvenile and child welfare law.

This legal chat will discuss whether pre-trial release conditions may actually increase recidivism in low risk youth and have a net-widening effect. Pre-trial release conditions that are routinely imposed throughout the commonwealth will be examined through the JDAI (Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative) lens. The efficacy of detaining youth for violations of pretrial release conditions will be questioned.

Take advantage of one of our most popular MBA On Demand programming formats. Legal chats are free 60-minute real-time interactive Webcasts you can watch, and participate in, from the comfort of your home or office.
