 The JJC and the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth

On November 15 and November 16, 2012, The Juvenile Justice clinic cosponsored a conference with the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth on strategies to implement the Supreme Court's decision in Miller v. Alabama. Advocates from around the country spent two days discussing the current state of implementation of the decision, devising new strategies to challenge mandatory life without parole sentences in the states, and brainstorming on ways to use the Court's reasoning concerning the diminished culpability of youth based on neuroscientific evidence in other areas of juvenile justice practice.
