Our Special Guest Speaker –
Kristin Henning, will present – “The Reasonable Black Child” on Friday, April 12. Then, on Saturday, April 13, she will present “Defenders’ Implicit Bias.” Professor Henning joined the faculty of the Georgetown Law Center in 1995 as a Stuart-Stiller Fellow in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Clinics. As a Fellow she represented adults and children in the D.C. Superior Court, while supervising law students in the Juvenile Justice Clinic. In 1997, Professor Henning joined the staff of the Public Defender Service (PDS) for the District of Columbia where she continued to represent clients and helped to organize a Juvenile Unit designed to meet the multi-disciplinary needs of children in the juvenile justice system. Professor Henning served as Lead Attorney for the Juvenile Unit from 1998 until she left the Public Defender Service to return to Georgetown in 2001. As lead attorney, she represented juveniles in serious cases, supervised and trained new PDS attorneys, and coordinated and conducted training for court-appointed attorneys representing juveniles.
Professor Henning has been active in local, regional and national juvenile justice reform, serving as Director of the Mid-Atlantic Juvenile Defender Center (MAJDC), President of the Board of Directors for the Center for Children’s Law and Policy, and on local D.C. Superior Court committees such as the Delinquency Working Group and the Family Court Training Committee. Professor Henning has also served as an expert consultant to a number of state and federal agencies, including the US Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.
Kris Henning worked closely with the Juvenile Indigent Defense Action Network to develop the Juvenile Training Immersion Program (JTIP), a national training curriculum for juvenile defense attorneys. She is a certified JTIP trainer and has organized numerous trainings for practicing juvenile defense attorneys, including the JTIP Summer Academy, an annual one week intensive training program for juvenile defense attorneys hosted at Georgetown Law in partnership with the National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC), the DC Juvenile Panel Trial Practice Group (a monthly training program for DC CJA bar attorneys), and trainings in rural areas throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. She is also often invited to train juvenile defenders throughout the country.
