Juvenile Law Center


Juvenile Law Center operates several free listservs to help foster discussion among and provide information for attorneys and professionals about issues facing youth in the foster care and justice systems.

Child Advocacy Listserv

Resumption of Jurisdiction Listserv

This listserv is for child welfare professionals, lawyers, paralegals, and advocates to discuss how to implement the Resumption of Jurisdiction Provision of Act 91 in Pennsylvania. To be added to this listserv, please fill out this form.

Juvenile Life Without Parole Listserv

This listserv was created in response to the United States Supreme Court's ruling in Miller v. Alabama and Jackson v. Hobbs, holding that states may no longer impose mandatory life without parole sentences on juveniles under the age of 18 convicted of homicide crimes. The listserv is designed to provide resources, updates, and technical support for attorneys representing individuals in Pennsylvania who were sentenced to life without parole as juveniles. To join, please email [email protected].
