    Product Description


    Things are always changing in Juvenile Court—make sure you understand the significance of the changes and where they are leading. Hear different judicial opinions on delinquency and child welfare issues that impact your practice. Not all judges think alike, but this program gives you insight into their thought process; not only what they are thinking about but also how they are thinking about it.

    Take this opportunity to learn from an experienced panel of Juvenile Court Judges! They discuss how the criminal justice reforms impact the day-to-day workings of the Court as well as the proposition of changing the age of the Court’s jurisdiction. Learn how judges are interpreting the latest cases and initiatives.

    No matter which agency you work for—DYS, CPCS, CAFL, DCF—everyone working with children and juveniles within Massachusetts will benefit from discovering what it is that the Juvenile Court Judges want you to know before you enter their courtrooms.
