NIU Law Students Jason Patel and Andrew Zerante Published in Child Law

Congratulations to third-year NIU College of Law students Jason Patel and Andrew Zerante, who each wrote an article featured in the April 2015 edition of Child Law, the Illinois State Bar Association's Section on Child Law newsletter. They join third-year students Kelvin Kakazu and Lindsey Lachanski, who were published in Child Law's January 2015 issue.

Patel's article dealt with when and why adults can be tried in juvenile court for crimes committed as minors and Zerante's entry questioned the nature of corporal punishment and when it becomes excessive, in light of the controversial case involving NFL player Adrian Peterson.
