Loyola University Chicago Hosts Juvenile Justice Colloquium
Speakers Discuss Interactions Between the Police and Youth

The Juvenile Justice Colloquium titled Indignities of Order Maintenance: Children, Law, and the Police will discuss how interactions between the police and youth, especially minority youth, can shape how the latter understand and react to the law and to social norms. It will also argue the need for a jurisprudence of dignity that exports the qualities of fair and respectful treatment to settings in which the police interact with juveniles.

Speakers include David Yellen, dean and professor of Law, Loyola University Chicago School of Law; Jeffrey Fagan, Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher professor of law, Columbia University; and Bernardine Dohrn, clinical associate professor of law, Northwestern Law School, founder, Children and Family Justice Center, and co-founder, Center on the Wrongful Conviction of Youth.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Interested guests should RSVP to chrc@luc.edu by April 1. The colloquium is sponsored by the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology, the Center for the Human Rights of Children, and the Civitas ChildLaw Center.
