The Long Life of a Juvenile Record:
from arrest to reentry
Description: Attorneys Sarah Davis and Emily Baxter demystify the juvenile justice system, from the point of arrest to court appearances, and from case resolution to common reentry barriers.
1) Gain an understanding of the juvenile justice system
2) Learn about the collateral consequences of a juvenile record - the long-term impact on employment, housing, or education with a juvenile arrest or adjudication record.
3) Learn about the potential remedies that exist to juvenile record issues, including future legislation
Sarah Davis is an attorney at the Legal Rights Center in Minneapolis, where her work focuses on advocating for youth.
