Events and Training
CJDC/OADC Immigration Consequences Training
During this training, Hans Meyer and Ashley Harrington will explain the different immigration consequences of adult convictions, juvenile adjudications, and contact with the criminal justice system. They will then describe relief available to juveniles, both in immigration court and in affirmative applications. Finally, they will update attendees on changes to immigration law, policy, and enforcement under the current administration and its impact on juveniles in the justice system.
Detention Advocacy after the 2019 Juvenile Justice Reform Bill
In 2019, the Juvenile Justice Reform Bill significantly changed the standards for detaining children. Recognizing the harm caused to children by detention, it made clear that detention should be a last resort and only used when absolutely necessary for the safety of the community. Attendees will learn about the statutory changes such as the removal of “danger to self” as a reason to detain a child, changes to risk screening procedures, and areas of litigation surrounding the new law.
