Meeting with US Judges

Yesterday Margaret, along with other members of the Justice Committee, met with Judge Victoria Pratt, former Chief Judge of Newark Municipal Court, Newark, New Jersey and Judge Ginger Learner-Wren, County Court Judge, Broward County, Florida.

The reason for the meeting was to discuss lessons Scotland can learn from the innovative work Justices Pratt and Learner-Wren are delivering through their pioneering use of community courts and procedural justice, and mental health courts in the USA.
