Has the Juvenile Court Outlived its Usefulness? December 1996

Broadcast Overview 
The changing nature and patterns of juvenile delinquency pose new challenges to communities across America. As the juvenile court approaches its 100th anniversary in 1999, a public debate has developed over whether the system remains a relevant response to juvenile delinquency. 

As part of OJJDP's national conference, "Juvenile Justice At The Crossroads," the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention broadcast a live
satellite teleconference from the Baltimore conference site on Friday, December 13, 1996. Panelists and participants will examine the question: "Has the Juvenile Court Outlived Its Usefulness?" 

Confirmed panelists include the Honorable Thomas E. Hornsby, President, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges; Dr. Barry Feld,
Professor of Law, University of Minnesota; the Honorable Glenda Hatchett, Chief Judge, Juvenile Court, Atlanta, Georgia; and Professor Janet
Ainsworth, University of Pugent Sound Law School. 

The broadcast--as the issue it addresses--is an important one for judges, prosecutors, State and local juvenile justice agency representatives, State and local policymakers, practitioners, members of public interest groups, law enforcement officials, program administrators, and other civic leaders.
