Mid-Atlantic Region of the Gault Center

Mid Atlantic Juvenile Defender Center

At the Georgetown Juvenile Justice Initiative (GJJI), we work passionately to improve legal representation in DC and across the Mid-Atlantic Region. Along with the Gault Center: Defenders of Youth Rights (formerly the National Juvenile Defender Center), GJJI coordinates The Mid-Atlantic Region of the Gault Center (MARGC), one of 9 regional centers of the Gault Center. MARGC is responsible for providing technical assistance and coordinating youth defender training and reform efforts in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Professor Henning is currently the Director of the MARGC. Together we seek to change the culture of juvenile justice by ensuring excellence in youth defense and promoting justice for all children across the Mid-Atlantic region.
