Juvenile Justice in Michigan: What's Next?
This event is in the past.
This event is hosted by the State Appellate Defender Office (SADO) and is proudly cosponsored by the Center for Behavioral Health and Justice.
In 2020, the National Juvenile Defender Center issued the report "Overdue for Justice: An Assessment of Access to and Quality of Juvenile Defense Counsel in Michigan." Join us as we discuss the report findings, the landscape of juvenile defense in our state, system reform priorities, and next steps toward improving access to justice for Michigan's children.
