Mitigation and Reentry Planning In Juvenile Life Without Parole ResentencingsCLE_Mitigation& Reentry Planning in Juvenile Life W/o Parole

Responding to Montgomery v. Louisiana

Presented by the Philadelphia Bar Association Legal Rights of Children Committee, the Atlantic Center for Capital Representation (ACCR) and the Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP)

This afternoon CLE program provides training on sentencing mitigation and reentry planning in the wake of the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Montgomery v. Louisiana, that called for the resentencing of over 300 Philadelphia men and women who were sentenced to life in prison without parole before their 18th birthdays.

ACCR and YSRP have previously hosted 2-day training sessions for mitigation specialists and volunteers who are interested in serving as mitigation specialists. They, along with the Legal Rights of Children Committee, have developed this condensed program to provide an overview of the fundamentals of mitigation and reentry as they relate to an attorney preparing for and presenting a resentencing hearing.

This 3-hour CLE program will highlight the following:

(1) Introduction & What is Mitigation?
(2) Mitigation Toolkit
(3) Records Collection
(4) Witness Interviews
(5) Signs & Symptoms of Mental Health
(6) Preparing for Reentry
(7) Q & A

Join your colleagues for a step-by-step overview of sentencing mitigation and reentry planning.
