Hearty welcome to a timely new blog: "Juvenile Justice Blog"

I am very pleased to welcome to the blogosphere Juvenile Justice Blog, a fantastic looking new blog by UNC law prof Tamar Birckhead.  Here is how Tamar, whose blog bio is available here, describes her new blog creation:

The purpose of this blog is to provide a central source for the latest news, information, scholarship, and commentary on issues related to juvenile justice in the United States.

It is intended for lawyers, academics, advocates, students, and all others interested in juvenile court practice, the fair sentencing of youth, and the criminalization of poverty, among other related topics.

If you would like to see something posted that fits within these themes, please email the blog administrator at tbirckhe@email.unc.edu.  As this is a work in progress, I welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and comments.

There is already a lot of great content on JJB.  And with a big SCOTUS ruling on the constitutional of juve LWOP coming wihtin the week, I am sure to make JJB a daily read in the weeks ahead.
