A free 2.5-hour CLE program. Girls constitute the largest growing segment of the juvenile justice system and now account for nearly one-third of all juvenile arrests in the United States. Are girls in the juvenile justice system treated differently than similarly situated boys, and are girls of color treated much differently than white girls?

Girls of color are 2.7 times more likely than their white counterparts to be referred to the legal system, 20 percent more likely to be formally petitioned and 1.2 times more likely to be detained than white girls.


This 2.5 credit program, with diversity (1.0) and ethics (1.5) credit, is sponsored by the Gender Fairness Committee of the Third Judicial District and the NYS Permanent Commission on Justice for Children. Please note that the Diversity credit will only be issued to those who are required/qualify to receive it. No additional credit will be issued in its place.


The program will feature:


•             Hon. Karen K. Peters (Ret.), chair, NYS Permanent Judicial Commission on Justice for Children

•             Hon. Rachel Kretser (Ret.), chair, Third JD Gender Fairness Committee

•             Hon. Kathie E. Davidson, Administrative Judge, Ninth JD

•             Hon. Lisa Fischer, Supreme Court Justice

•             Dr. Shabnam Javdani, Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology at NYU

•             McKenzie Berezin, Doctoral Fellow at NYU
