Journal for Advancing Justice Vol. I: Identifying and Rectifying Racial, Ethnic and Gender Disparities in Treatment Courts
Promising interventions to ensure that treatment courts and the broader justice system meet their most basic obligations to ensure justice for all.
The inaugural issue of the Journal for Advancing Justice provides critical insight into how treatment courts and the broader justice system can meet their most basic obligations to ensure justice for all. This volume includes six peer-reviewed articles detailing cutting-edge findings from the largest multi-site studies on disparities in treatment courts conducted to date. In addition, the journal examines the results of culturally proficient interventions designed to eliminate barriers faced by some racial and ethnic groups in accessing and succeeding in treatment courts.
