Kathleen Hogan, District Attorney, Warren County; Elsie Chandler, Esq., Senior Staff Attorney and Director of the Youth Law Project at Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem; Hon. Kathleen DeCataldo, Executive Director, Permanent Judicial Commission on Justice for Children; and Nancy Ginsburg, Esq., Director, Adolescent Intervention and Diversion Project, The Legal Aid Society. The panel was Moderated by William J. Leahy, Esq., Director of the New York State Office of Indigent Legal Services. You may view other panelists’ addresses here.

The New York Center for Juvenile Justice would like to thank Denise Kronstadt, Deputy Executive Director and Director of Advocacy at the Fund For Modern Courts for organizing this important forum and for providing the Center with the opportunity to participate.
