The criminal justice and prison systems in Alabama have been put under the spotlight in recent years. Alabama’s juvenile justice system and high youth incarceration rates exacerbate the crisis, calling into question the system as a whole and what can be done to reduce incarceration and recidivism rates. The Law & Psychology Review will be hosting a symposium to address this area of law. The symposium, entitled “Youth Incarceration and Juvenile Justice in Alabama,” will have a group of expert panelists with diverse backgrounds ranging from academics to government workers. These panelists will facilitate a discussion addressing the current juvenile justice system and what can be down to reduce youth incarceration in Alabama.
