February NACC Member Webinar Algorithms in Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice @ Online

February NACC Member Webinar Algorithms in Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice.

Algorithms and predictive models are increasingly used in the child welfare and juvenile systems, yet most of them are not seen by courts, and attorneys and court personnel may struggle to understand how they work. This webinar will demystify the use of algorithms and help practitioners understand the ways the algorithms themselves can be biased based on race and income and can be misused. Algorithms are powerful tools, but they are not infallible, and courts have an ethical duty to understand  how these tools might impact vulnerable children. Participants will learn why, how, and where these algorithmic models affect outcomes for children and families for both good and ill and their possible future use.

The presenter, Matthew Trail, is conducting a survey for attorneys, law students, and judges in child welfare practice to learn how they would make decisions if given an algorithmic predictive model risk score and asks that attendees take the survey prior to the webinar, so that the results can be discussed. The survey can be found here: https://mpibonn.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bKJxn8hOyT52tfM

 

Presenter:

Matthew Trail, JD, Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods

Matthew Trail worked for fifteen years as an attorney ad litem representing children in foster care, with a focus on representing children with disabilities and mental health issues from trauma. He began his career at a legal aid office in Florida and then moved to Houston where he eventually became managing attorney for Disability Rights Texas’ foster team. In 2020, Matthew joined the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods Behavioral Law section as a research fellow where he researches decision-making in foster care.

The Institute for New Juvenile and Family Court Judges is designed specifically for state and tribal judicial officers who are new to the juvenile and family court bench or who are returning to the bench after other assignments and desire a refresher course.

This intensive 4½ day program, previously known as Core College, is designed so participants can leave with increased knowledge, practical tools, and an essential foundation of best practice to use in the cases coming before them. A strong faculty of current and former judicial officers and content area experts from academic and applied settings will share their insight on ethical issues, child and adolescent development, schools and courts, the Indian Child Welfare Act, trauma-informed justice, abuse and neglect, delinquency, interpersonal violence, custody, divorce, self-represented litigants, judicial safety and security, and dealing with the media.

Accordingly, this training prepares judicial scholars for participation in other NCJFCJ institutes that delve further into the topic areas of family law, delinquency, dependency, and domestic violence.
