Registration is now open for the Southern Juvenile Defender Center Regional Summit in Charlotte, June 17 and 18. Held at the Charlotte School of Law, the Regional Summit will be attended by juvenile defenders from seven southeastern states.
This year’s Summit celebrates the 5th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court decision J.D.B. v. North Carolina. Presentations will include the state of Miranda since the decision, innovative legal challenges to confessions, as well as broader discussions of the impact of the J.D.B on youth issues on the on-the-ground decisions that led to the victory. The Summit will also include networking opportunities and forums for sharing challenges and successes in systems across the Southeast.
There is no registration fee. Scholarships are available for shared lodging accommodations on a first-come, first-served basis.
