The Cost of Lib­er­ty: Bail in the Juve­nile Court

This webi­nar shares the find­ings in A Right to Lib­er­ty: Reform­ing Juve­nile Mon­ey Bail, a qual­i­ta­tive study by the Nation­al Juve­nile Defend­er Cen­ter on the use of mon­ey bail in the 19 states that allow it. The study reveals that mon­ey bail is used with shock­ing reg­u­lar­i­ty in juve­nile courts…as a means of ensur­ing that youth are kept behind bars with­out any find­ing of guilt.” The dis­cus­sion explores how local prac­tices effect youth and their fam­i­lies in the juve­nile legal sys­tem.

Expe­dit­ing Case Processing

Jus­tice prac­ti­tion­ers in JDAI sites and relat­ed tech­ni­cal assis­tance orga­ni­za­tions come togeth­er for mutu­al sup­port and dis­cus­sion about their work in expe­dit­ing case pro­cess­ing. This is part of the JDAIcon­nect brunch and learn series, which is less for­mal than a tra­di­tion­al webi­nar. Record­ed on June 72019

A Glob­al Move­ment to Reduce Length of Stay in Juve­nile Detention

Juve­nile Jus­tice Advo­cates Inter­na­tion­al, the orga­ni­za­tion found­ed by webi­nar pan­elist Dou­glas Keil­lor, released the report Chil­dren in Pre­tri­al Deten­tion: Pro­mot­ing Stronger Inter­na­tion­al Time Lim­its, the first inter­na­tion­al study on how long chil­dren spend in deten­tion await­ing adju­di­ca­tion or tri­al. Around the world it is com­mon for young peo­ple to spend longer in pre­tri­al deten­tion, where they are often sub­ject to abuse, than they would for any even­tu­al sen­tence. The webi­nar explores how JDAI and sim­i­lar work in Mex­i­co should set the inter­na­tion­al stan­dard for reduc­ing case pro­cess­ing times and why it is vital for youth well-being around the world.
