In 2022, Illinois became one of a small but growing number of states to legislatively require the conservation of federal benefits for some youth in care by passing Public Act 102-1014. The Act impacts the manner in which the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services handles Social Security Disability, Social Security Income, and other federal survivor’s benefits for youth in the care of the Department. This webinar will explore how child welfare systems historically handled children’s benefits, the national movement to change these practices, and the provisions and status of implementation of PA 102-1014.
This webcast is presented by the Illinois Court Improvement Program and Supreme Court of Illinois Judicial College‘s Guardian ad Litem Education Committee, Committee on Judicial Education, and Committee on Probation Education.

Founded in 2004, NYU CVR is a research center dedicated to advancing knowledge on the causes and consequences of violence/trauma and developing solutions that foster healing among individuals, families and communities. For the past two decades, NYU CVR has partnered with local judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, treatment providers/community-based organizations, victim advocates and community members in implementing and studying the use of restorative justice to address domestic violence crimes in communities across the nation.

This CLE, presented by the Juvenile Defender Resource Center, will provide a snapshot of recent and pending Illinois Supreme Court decisions surrounding youth and emerging adults. We will also discuss some positive developments in the trial and appellate courts notwithstanding the tenor of Illinois Supreme Court decisions. We will have a conversation of what arguments are "still on the table" and ways to frame arguments in both the trial court and the appellate court using statutory frameworks, caselaw, and both the U.S. and Illinois constitutions. We will also touch on the early returns on the Youthful Offender Parole Act. The program will end with a robust question and answer session where we will provide space to share successful strategies and brainstorm some paths forward.
