The Justice Collaboratory brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and researchers at Yale University and elsewhere to work on issues related to institutional reform and policy innovation and advancement. We infuse theory and empirical research in order to achieve our goal of making the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic.

Justice Forward is the Justice Collaboratory’s vision for rethinking and reforming the criminal justice system. We are forging a new path grounded in the idea that if we are to build a fair and effective system, we must 1) arrest the persistence of inequality and draw down the concentration of criminal justice exposure that itself can become criminogenic, 2) focus on mobilizing and engaging members of the community as co-producers of justice, and 3) be mindful of the fact that offending and victimization are concentrated and intertwined within the same small social networks. The Justice Collaboratory will pursue this vision through the production of innovative and collaborative research, policy engagement, training, and outreach.

Collaborator Focus: BJ Casey


BJ Casey is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Fundamentals of the Adolescent Brain (FAB) Lab at Yale University and an Adjunct Professor at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City where she holds appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neuroscience.  Dr. Casey uses innovative brain imaging techniques to explore and explain how the developing adolescent brain is simlar to, and very different from, both child and adult brains. Her work in this area has informed public debate around the age of legal responsability and has important implications for policies on adolescent involvement with the criminal justice system. On February 21st, Dr. Casey presented a talk "The Adolescent Brain: "Arrested" or Adaptive development?" at the Justice Collaboratory Lunctime Seminar.
