Abstract: A National Symposium on Indigent Defense (February 18 and 19, 2010) included a focus on juvenile justice issues. A plenary session entitled "Innovations in Juvenile Defense Reform" focused on obstacles to effective defense services for indigent juveniles and ways in which juvenile defense services can be improved. A National Symposium on Child Protection in Indian Country (March 9-11, 2010) offered workshops that fostered a multidisciplinary approach and coordinated tribal-based efforts to combat child abuse, neglect, and exploitation in Indian country. The third annual Blueprints Conference (April 7-9, 2010) involved 40 panels and workshops on the latest evidence-based models for preventing and intervening in youth violence. OJJDP is sponsoring an Internet Crimes Against children (ICAC) Conference on May 11-14, 2010. This is the Nation's largest training conference for law enforcement investigators, forensic experts, and prosecutors involved in combating the online exploitation of children. The 26th National Symposium on Child Abuse (March 22-25, 2010) had workshop topics on administration, prevention, child protective services, law enforcement, medical and mental health treatment, and victim advocacy. Activities for Children's Mental Health Awareness Day (May 6, 2010) are also described. "News in Brief" reports on release of a solicitation to address children's exposure to violence, creation of the Tribal Nations Leadership Council, the National Institute of Justice's Annual Conference, announcement of the 12th Annual Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws Conference, the finalizing of OJJDP's fiscal year 2010 program plan, and OJJDP's holding of a listening session on training and technical assistance.
