Memo from the department of self-promotion: Juvienation has been included on the Criminal Justice Degree Guide’s list of the Top 100 Criminal Justice Blogs. There doesn’t seem to be an order of rank on this most distinguished of lists; rather, the blogs have been organized by type. Juvienation sits alongside some well-regarded big fish in the Corrections and Sentencing category, which “features blogs about the death penalty, prison systems, sentencing law and policy, and other criminal justice news.” They include:
