The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee voted to advance HB 1381 today, which YSRP hopes will usher in a more humane era of support and care for youth involved in the criminal legal system.
On December 21, 2020, The American Law Institute elected 41 new members, including YSRP Co-Director Joanna Visser Adjoian, to their ranks. This new slate of members, including some partners of YSRP, were selected in a confidential nominations process. Members will bring their experience to the ongoing work of the Institute. Joanna is honored by her election as a new member, and joins a prestigious group of lawyers, academics, and state and federal judges.
