MacArthur Foundation highlights CLBB Juvenile Justice Initiative

The MacArthur Foundation, a leading catalyst for juvenile justice reform, featured the CLBB Juvenile Justice working group and upcoming symposium on its website:

The Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Law, Brain & Behavior has convened a juvenile justice working group to explore the intersection of juvenile justice and the adolescent brain. The working group seeks to promote neuro-scientific research that elucidates the adolescent brain and to realize changes in juvenile law and treatment that reflect the work of the MacArthur Network on Adolescent Development and Juvenile Justice, the Foundation’s Models for Change juvenile justice reform initiative, and other such efforts. The group’s work will be featured in a public symposium on March 12, 2015.
