The Center on Children and Families at the University of Florida Levin College of Law is launching the Juvenile Justice Project, an effort to benefit children locally, statewide and nationally by focusing on the juvenile justice system.  The project will provide research, advocacy, conferences, workshops and projects in this area and welcomes collaboration with others. The project will host its first conference on February 19 and 20, 2010.  The plenary speakers  are Geoffrey Canada, the founder and president of the Harlem Children’s Zone, the innovative project profiled by Paul Tough in Whatever It Takes (2008), and Shay Bilchik, Director of the Juvenile Justice Reform Project at Georgetown, and former president of the Child Welfare League of America.  Additional confirmed participants include Bob Schwartz (Juvenile Law Center), Chris Slobogin (Vanderbilt), Mark Fondacaro (John Jay College, CUNY), Alex Piquero (Maryland) and Kenneth Nunn (Florida). For further information about the first conference, which will focus on issues of prevention and avoidance,  and for the call for paper, see the website. Registration information to attend the conference will be available in fall 2009.  For more information contact: Nancy E. Dowd  dowd@law.ufl.edu or Shari King king@law.ufl.edu
