PRS 100th and 101st Briefs: Students Testify Before the New Hampshire Senate Judiciary Committee

On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, four students from the Policy Research Shop (PRS) of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center traveled to Concord, NH to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator Sharon Carson. Austin Goldberg ’13, Adam Nasser ’15, Portia Schultz ’15, and Grace Hart ’13 presented two PRS policy briefs—“New Hampshire’s Juvenile Justice System: An Investigation of Current Practices for Handling Youth in the Criminal Justice System,” and “The Adult Drug Courts of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine: An Analysis of Effectiveness and Barriers to Expansion”—to the committee members and responded to their questions.

PRS students Jaya Batra ’13, Aislinn McLaughlin ’14, Megan Bogia ’15, and Ayesha Dholakia ’15 also contributed to the two policy briefs but were unable to attend the committee hearing. These two papers represent the 100th and 101st PRS policy briefs produced by the Policy Research Shop since its inception in the spring term of 2005 when a single policy brief was produced by three students.
