Prof. Theo Liebmann Presents at Symposium on Court-Involved Youth in the 21st Century
Professor Theo Liebmann gave a panel presentation at the symposium “Court-Involved Youth in the 21st Century: Empowerment vs. Protection,” co-sponsored by the Juvenile Law Center, the Temple Law Review and the MacArthur Foundation.
The symposium, held on Oct. 2-3, 2015, brought together leading researchers, practitioners and academics from around the world to explore topics including how courts, policymakers and practitioners should incorporate emerging brain science and adolescent development research into the treatment of court-involved youth, ethical issues involved in representing youth, and international perspectives on children’s rights.
Professor Liebmann’s presentation focused on the broad scope of the counseling duty for lawyers who represent youth in delinquency and other family court proceedings.
