April 04, 2007

Ketchikan, Alaska - Alaska Chief Justice Dana Fabe will be in Ketchikan on Wednesday, April 4 for the second in a series of state-wide Open Court sessions, a program where judges, criminal justice officials and other members of the justice community discuss ways to improve the courts and the legal system. The Ketchikan program will focus on "Closing the Revolving Door: Therapeutic Courts & Responses to Juvenile Substance Abuse".

The public is invited to a reception and a public forum at the State Office Building, 415 Main Street, Fourth floor, starting at 5:30 p.m. The forum will present an opportunity for the public to learn what the criminal justice community is doing to reduce recidivism in this area for adults and juveniles, hear recommendations for improving the administration of justice, and to provide your own ideas for improving the administration of justice. Chief Justice Fabe will moderate the event.

Chief Justice Fabe will be hosting Open Court programs in other parts of the state that will address a variety of other issues selected by local legal communities, including Juvenile Justice, Unrepresented Litigants and Education in the Schools.
