In Teen Court, Kids Have A Right To A Jury Of Their Peers
Description: By housing the courts in community centers, the Center for Court Innovation hopes to connect at-risk kids who come to youth court with other services they might need close to home. Though teen courts seem popular with some legal experts — the former New York State chief judge launched a fund to provide financial support and has unsuccessfully lobbied for legislation — funding is scarce. Mark your calendar for March 23rd from 10 am - 2 pm for the next training. I personally believe, however, that appearing in front of a jury of teenage peers, and then later participating as a juror, has a far more effective impact in deterring future misconduct than the traditional juvenile justice system.
