Internet Roundup


A few recent items from the world wide web that caught my eye:

-- The National Assocation of State Judicial Educators has a piece in their newsletter about our project to improve communication in criminal courts.

-- The increasingly prominent conservative group Right on Crime has joined the recent fight to defend drug courts. In doing so, they point to national research -- the Multi-Site Adult Drug Court Evaluation -- performed by the Center for Court Innovation in concert with the Urban Institute and RTI.

-- The New York Times reports on "project safe surrender," an effort by the Brooklyn DA's office, the Office of Court Administration and others to bring the courts into the community to help clear warrants. I think it is a cool idea that would be worth trying in Brownsville, among other places.
