Every year, the UC Davis Journal of Juvenile Law and Policy (JJLP) hosts a Spring Symposium at King Hall in order to facilitate a healthy, productive, and academically important discussion about the urgent issues surrounding the juvenile justice system in our country and specifically in California.  

This year's symposium will be "Combating the Sexual Exploitation of Youth: Legal Advocacy and Community Responses." Human trafficking is the world's fastest growing criminal enterprise and the second most profitable one behind drug trafficking. We hope to highlight the needs of youth victims caught within domestic sexual exploitation, as well as discuss current efforts to address this issue in our communities.

The Symposium will be on Friday, February 21st in the Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom (Room 1001). Please see below for our schedule.
