Emilio Calatayud, the Reforming Judge

Dear 2nd BAC students, this is a post for all of you who didn´t know Emilio Calatayud, the Juvenile Court judge in Granada, before we did the university entrance exam in class last week. 

In the following video you will have a glimpse of the kinds of things he does working as a judge; just about everything that came out in the text is mentioned here: his original way of dealing with juvenile offenders, the kind of punishments he chooses, his emphasis on resocializing young people... a role model for all the other judges

If you are interested in seeing the other side of the coin, click here to read about Juvenile In Justicea project to document the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist and, occasionally, harm them.

The project includes images of over 1,000 juveniles and administrators over 200 facilities in 31 states in the U.S, plus extensive information collected from interviews. The hope is that by seeing these images, people will have a better understanding of the conditions that exist.

  1. Hello, Rosa. I also used this video with some of my students, it's really food for thought. I'm Daniel Rouco from Lugo and I'd like to know if you're interested in sharing your blog experience with APIGA. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/notes/apiga-galicia/blogs-why-not-/239028012871492?comment_id=1001439&notif_t=comment_mention
    Warm regards

  2. Danny, thanks for the thought. It is a hectic time of the year for me right now (with the finals in 2nd BAC) so I can´t promise anything...we´ll see.
