The Juvenile Justice Blog has now been in operation for about a month! We have almost 100 subscribers, nearly 4000 page visits, over 100 “LIKES” on the Facebook page, over 200 Twitter followers, and lots of good coverage by other blogs. My sense is that the site has a regular audience and that it is filling a gap in terms of what we’re trying to do.
To show my appreciation to readers, I would like to give away — free with no shipping costs, etc. — FOUR COPIES of the new edition of the wonderful casebook that I co-edit with Professor Leslie Harris (Oregon), Children, Parents, and the Law: Public and Private Authority in the Home, Schools, and Juvenile Courts (Aspen 3d ed. 2012). The book sells for $165, so it’s an excellent value.
What do you need to do if you’d like a free copy of the casebook?
Simply leave a comment here and explain a little bit about yourself, what you like about the Juvenile Justice Blog, and your suggestions for making the Blog better. When you comment, please enter a working email address (which will not appear publicly). I will continue to accept comments until midnight on July 31, 2012, after which I will assign a number to each comment (which will coincide with the sequence in which they appear, so if you are the fifth to comment, your number is 5). Then I will use this handy random number generator to pick four (4) winners, whom I will email with notice of their good fortune; they will provide me with a shipping address, and the books will be in the mail soon thereafter.
Also — while my immediate family is excluded (sorry, girls!), other folks who know me personally, work with me, etc., are free to participate. If you leave more than one comment, only a single number will be assigned to you, which will coincide with your first comment on this thread.
Enjoy and thanks again for your interest and support of the Juvenile Justice Blog.
