Juvenile Law Center has just released an updated Information Sharing Tool Kit, a product created in partnership with the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice as part of Models for Change juvenile justice reform initiatives. Originally developed in 2008, the updated Tool Kit has been transformed into an interactive website designed to assist jurisdictions in creating and implementing information and data sharing initiatives in order to achieve better outcomes for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.

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.
