 Juvenile SeminarOctober 18, 2018

The Keck Center, Room 101
500 5th Street, NW
Washington, DC  20001

The Committee on Law and Justice is holding this seminar in conjunction with its biannual meeting.  This seminar will provide the Committee on Law and Justice (CLAJ), invited guests, and others with a forum to discuss a framework for the development of future research pertinent to the prosecution of crime and delinquency. In 2001 after convening a workshop, the Committee on Law and Justice (CLAJ) published a report on What’s Changing in Prosecution? As it has been 17 years since the National Academies undertook activities specifically addressing the prosecution of crime, this is an appropriate time for the Committee to explore past and current research and hear from prosecutors, researchers, policy makers, and others about the needs of the field.

This workshop arose out of the efforts of the Committee on Law and Justice to assist the National Institute of Justice in identifying gaps in the overall research portfolio on crime and justice. It was designed to develop ideas about the kinds of knowledge needed to gain a better understanding of the prosecution function and to discuss the past and future role of social science in advancing our understanding of modern prosecution practice.
