Scholars from North America and the European Union will meet for UNC’s sixth annual conference on the future of adversarial systems. This event will take place at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Frank Porter Graham Student Union on Friday, April 11 (9 AM-5 PM) and Saturday, April 12 (9 AM-12 PM). There will also be a pre-conference for young scholars on April 10.
The main conference will address juvenile justice from a comparative point of view, while the pre-conference will address juvenile justice in transnational and international law. In regards to a comparative context, this includes acknowledged distinctions between juvenile and adult criminal offenders; the approach to prevention of juvenile delinquency; the minimum age of criminal responsibility; the extent to which minors require different and additional procedural rights to adults; and developments in non-formal approaches to juvenile crime.
Admission for UNC students is free, for non-UNC students is $15, and for general admission (no CLE credit) is $40. The registration fee includes refreshments, Friday lunch and program materials.
