It is with mixed emotions that I write to let you know that after 40 years as Juvenile Law Center’s Executive Director, Bob Schwartz will be retiring later this year. Bob was a founder of Juvenile Law Center in 1975, along with Marsha Levick and Temple Law School classmates Judy Chomsky and Phil Margolis. Juvenile Law Center was the first public interest law firm for children in the Untied States, starting out as a small Philadelphia office that represented individual children in situations where legal advice was needed.

This year, Juvenile Law Center is participating in the Giving Tuesday movement on Twitter and Facebook. Help us spread the word by using #GivingTuesday and tagging us on Twitter (@JuvLaw1975) and Facebook (Juvenile Law Center).
