Domus welcomes law stu

F ur thu first Line, Hofitra Law School first-
ytuar students got a taste of the Nassau
County Bar Association when they topped off
their week-long urientatiun program with
lunch at Domus. More than .300 students from
across the country dined in the Great Hall
and Ikmus dining ror and were wurmly     BY VA
greeted by NCBA directors, committee
chairs, members and staff.                  ZURI
Earlier in the day, students visited the
New York Supreme Court building, where they were
welcomed to the legal proteesion by NCBA President
Peter Levy. Hon. Anthony Marano, administrative
judge for the Courts of Namau CountJ adminitered
an 'oath of p  eionlim  to the students.

This is the first time we have added the Nassau
County Bar Association to our orientation program,
nted Jeffrey Dodge, Ffatra Law School aesistant
dean Por administration nnd operations. We feel the
experience of being a member of a bar association is
important for our students to understand
LERIE early on in their careers.
We were very pleased to host our fture
BLIS   lawyers at Domns, added Executive Director
Dr. Deena Ehrlich. Although we were a bit
crowded with 000 for lunch, we were proud to show-
ease our home and to introduce the students to the
Nassau County Bar Association. We look forward to
working closely with all the. law students through-
out the year.

Nassau County launches
Juvenile Treatment Court
By Gregg Roth
If the phrase g'et me out of here now had a face, it
would be Anna's* at this very moment. Anna, age 17, was
sitting at a table with six adults, including her muler and
a Family Court judge, all of them smiling back at her.
Anna had just become the first member of the Nassau
County Juvenile Treatment Court, a new program created
to address substance abuse problems aniong children who
are before the Nassau County Family Court with juvenile
delinquency or person in need of supervision (PINS) cases.
The adults sitting around the table represented a spec-
trum of Nassau County and New York State agencies, all
of whom joined together over a year ago to map out a srat-
egy to arrive at this day. After attending weekly lunchtine
meetings, aumerous lectures, training sessions through-
out New York and in other parts of the country, as well as
online the group, calling itself The Juvenile Treatment
Court Tham, was finally ready to commence the Juvenile
Treatment Court on May 1, 2008.
The Juvenile Treatment Court is the result of collabo-
ratng across disciplines and pooling county, state and fed-
eral resources. Nassau County was one of only three cown-
ties nationwide to receive a funding through a Reclaiming
Futures grant from the federal government in 2007.
Reclaiming Futures is a program specifically designed to
improve treatment offered to substance-involved youth,
however its general mission is far-reaching and its broad
intent is to improve services available to children and
their families in the entire community, not just for those
who appear before a judge. Together with the Reclaiming
Futures grant, State and County agencies such as the
Office of Court Administration, Canter for Court
Innovation, the Nassau County Probation Department
and the Nassau County Attorney's Office, among others,
provided resources and staff to launch the state's newest
Juvenile Treatment Court.
This program works because all of the agencies
