Group Profile: United States Court System

This policy group approached the opioid crisis from the perspective of the United States Court System. OHIO students collaborated with Leipzig University students to define the court system and use this understanding to suggest improvements. One issue the group identified was with how the court system views addicts as criminals. This stigma makes it difficult for addicts to access rehabilitation and reintegrate into society, and therefore they are prone to relapse and legal trouble. The group worked as a judicial conference to address this problem.
