On April 19th 2017, the Master of Laws: Advanced Studies in International Children’s Rights  is organizing a public seminar on Juvenile Justice in the U.S Context, with Mr. Hasan Davis.

Mr. Hasan Davis is a leading performer, youth advocate and motivator. He has overcome personal challenges in his early life (including pre-teen arrests and expulsion from educational systems), and attained legal education. Mr. Hasan Davis has considerable experience in all areas of youth development and has also worked as a youth violence prevention specialist and as a commissioner in the Kentucky department of juvenile justice. His personal story, as well as extensive practical experience and knowledge, offers a unique point of view on juvenile justice in the U.S.

The seminar will take place Wednesday 19 April 2017 at the KOG-building (room B.035), 14:00-15:30. It will include a talk with Mr. Hasan Davis, followed by a Q&A session with students and staff members.

The event is part of the ‘’Monthly Meeting’’ tradition of the International Children’s Rights programme: an extra-curricular forum to address topical issues impacting the lives of children, in an interactive atmosphere and with experts who are familiar with the realities ‘’on the ground’’.


Students from the Advanced Studies in International Children’s Rights, the Dutch Child Law Master, and the Criminal Justice Master are invited.

Other interested students and staff members are welcome to join. Please register with Ms. Vera Versluis-Blankestijn at v.c.blankestijn@law.leidenuniv.nl.
