2018 National Forum on Criminal Justice

Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) and the IJIS Institute (IJIS), the National Forum on Criminal Justice showcases programs, research, and technologies that help justice practitioners and decisionmakers in states, local communities, and tribal nations address pressing public safety issues. It is the only criminal justice conference that brings together leaders from federal, state, local, and tribal government and the public and private sector to share real world strategies and solutions from around the country.

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) recently published the blog post “Promoting Justice for All,” authored by Acting Assistant Attorney General (AAG) Alan Hanson, on the importance of the right to counsel. In the OJP Blog, Acting AAG Hanson emphasizes the necessity of protecting and improving the fundamental right to counsel guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, calling it “the foundation of true justice.”

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking resumes from qualified experts to serve as peer reviewers to assess grant applications. Selected reviewers may evaluate grant applications remotely and will not be required to attend any in-person meetings. Before the review period begins, reviewers will participate in an Orientation Call that will define the background and purpose of the grant under review, as well as the roles and responsibilities for reviewers.
