ABA SUMMIT ON INDIGENT DEFENSE BRINGS TOGETHER KEY STAKEHOLDERS ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE ISSUES

CHICAGO, April 12, 2018 — The American Bar Association will host the 13th Annual Summit on Indigent Defense Improvement on April 20 in Chicago, and the list of speakers includes defense attorneys, public interest activists and state supreme court justices.

What:                     2018 Summit on Indigent Defense Improvement
When:                    Friday, April 20, 2018
Where:                  ABA Headquarters
                                321 N. Clark Street
                                Chicago, Ill. 60654

The six programs at the one-day summit run the gamut from conflicts that could arise for lawyers who represent indigent defendants to the challenges posed to judges who seek to be change agents and still fulfill their role as unbiased adjudicators. Illinois Supreme Court Justice Thomas Kilbride, who served as the state’s chief justice for three years, and North Carolina Supreme Court Justice Cheri Beasley are slated to participate on the 2:30 p.m. panel, “Judicial Role: What role should judges play in public defense reform?”

Rick Kammen, a criminal defense lawyer based in Indianapolis, will provide the luncheon keynote address. Kammen has represented more than 300 homicide defendants, including involvement in approximately 40 death penalty cases. Until October 2017, he served as “Learned Counsel” in United States v. Abdul Rahim Al-Nashiri — the case involving an alleged central figure in the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in 2000 in Aden, Yemen that is now before the Military Commission at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Kammen and other civilian counsel withdrew from the case after the commission declined to address possible intrusions into the attorney-client relationship.

Also, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, who campaigned on ending mass incarceration, will participate in the panel at 3:45 p.m. titled, “Progressive Prosecution: Can prosecutors help drive criminal justice reform?”  Since taking office, Krasner has implemented reforms, including not seeking bail in misdemeanor and nonviolence felony cases.

The summit program can be found online. The conference is sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Legal Aid and Indigent Defendants along with the nonprofit group Justice Works and the National Legal Aid & Defender Association.

All sessions are open to the media but pre-registration is necessary. To register, please contact Bill Choyke at 202-662-1864 or bill.choyke@americanbar.org.

SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS 5-DAY WORKSHOP (JULY 9-13) IN THE ICPSR SUMMER PROGRAM
ICPSR -- Ann Arbor, MI
July 9 - July 13; 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS – methods for empirical analysis of interdependent processes (a.k.a.: contagion, spillovers, network dependence, …)

Do the outcomes in some units or individuals in your research analyses depend on outcomes in other units? That is, are the outcomes of interest in your studies likely contagious from units to neighboring units, or otherwise proximate or connected units? Do the processes you study diffuse across units in some manner? Are there spillovers across subjects? If you study anything in the social sciences, and likely most things beyond, almost certainly they are/do.

This workshop (July 9-13 in Ann Arbor) teaches empirical methods (focusing on spatial-autoregressive models) for modeling, for estimation, and for interpretation of such spatial (i.e., cross-unit) interdependence (a.k.a., contagion/diffusion/spillover/network-dependence...).

Applied (computer-lab) sessions and exercises are bilingual, i.e. with lab scripts in Stata and R both available, and students are of course welcome to use other software as they prefer.

Spatial Econometrics
Instructor(s): Robert J. Franzese, University of Michigan

Cross-unit (i.e., "spatial") interdependence is ubiquitous throughout the social sciences, and beyond. Events or outcomes in one observational unit are almost always related to similar occurrences in other observational units. This is so for such diverse phenomena as disturbances and conflicts within and among nations; consumer, investor, and producer choices in markets; individuals' opinions and behavior in societies; crime, health, and environmental outcomes; voting by citizens in elections or by legislators in legislatures; and policies in political jurisdictions. In such contexts, "standard" statistical methods (which assume independent observations) are inappropriate, and design-based methods of "causal inference" are, at best, inadequate. This workshop introduces strategies appropriate for interdependent observations, emphasizing spatial and spatiotemporal models of interdependent continuous and limited outcomes.

The main objective of the workshop is to demonstrate how such spatial, cross unit, interdependence can be incorporated into empirical analysis most productively. Course participants will learn how to: diagnose spatial-correlation patterns; estimate spatial-regression models; distinguish between different sources of spatial correlation (common exposure, contagion, and selection); and calculate and present the spatial and spatiotemporal effects that empirical models which incorporate interdependence imply. Methods to be covered include: measures of spatial association; instrumental-variable and maximum-likelihood estimators for regression models with spatial interdependence; multiple-spatial-lag models; spatial interdependence in models with limited and qualitative dependent-variables; and models for coevolutionary processes.

Prerequisites: Participants in this course should have some familiarity with linear regression and models for qualitative/limited dependent variables (e.g., logit, probit, etc.). This workshop does not assume any prior knowledge of, or experience with, spatial statistics.

NOTE: This course does not cover geographical information systems (GIS) or geocoding of spatial data, except insofar as the methods covered are frequently applied to such data. Also, for purposes of this course, the term "spatial" means "among spatial units." The correlation and/or dependence in question may or may not be geographically based.

Fee: Members = $1700; Non-members = $3200


FRAGILE FAMILIES SUMMER DATA WORKSHOP
Columbia University, New York City
July 11-13, 2018

The Columbia Population Research Center is accepting applications for the Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop, which will be held July 11-13, 2018, at Columbia University in New York City.

The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, a national study following a birth cohort of (mostly) unmarried parents and their children, providing information about the capabilities, circumstances, and relationships of unwed parents, the wellbeing of their children, and the role of public policy in family and child well-being. The 2018 workshop will include special sections on the neighborhood data in the Fragile Families Study.

The workshop is targeted toward early-career scholars from social science disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students using the Fragile Families data in their dissertation. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must possess basic quantitative data analysis skills. About 25-30 applicants will be selected. Financial support will be available for out-of-town participants.

Additional information about the Fragile Families study is available at www.fragilefamilies.princeton.edu.

The online application is available at http://www.ffworkshop.columbia.edu.

The deadline for application submission is Thursday, March 1st, 2018 at 11:59pm (EST).
