Is It Time To Rethink the Death Penalty? Listen In Sunday at 7 AM on MyPhillyLawyer Court Radio

June 28th, 2018

By Dean I Weitzman, Esq.


MyPhillyLawyer’s Dean Weitzman will host his weekly Court Radio show tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. on a very important topic — “Is It Time To Rethink The Death Penalty?”

Weitzman’s special guest on the program will be Phil Harris, an associate professor of criminal justice at Temple University. His teaching and research have focused primarily on the areas of juvenile justice, juvenile correctional strategies, and organizational and system development. He received his Ph.D. from the School of Criminal Justice at The University at Albany (SUNY) in 1979. Prior to coming to Temple in 1980, Phil spent four years as a juvenile correctional administrator in Canada. There he directed the professional services department of a large private agency, developed training for staff and designed the agency’s management information system. From 1989 to 1995 Phil directed the Juvenile Corrections Leadership Forum, a program of leadership development for state-level juvenile corrections directors, funded by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. JCLF was the platform for launching the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators.
