Professor Paul J. Hirschfield studies the expanded use of criminal sanctions and labels in response to vulnerable youth population. He has examined criminalization in relation to school misconduct and mentally disordered youth, and very recently began to study criminalization in relation to the foster care system. He has studied adverse consequences of criminalization (e.g., high school dropout) both for individuals and for inner-city schools and neighborhoods that experience “hyper-concentrations” of juvenile arrests.

Professor Paul J. Hirschfield investigates the challenges facing youth returning to from correctional settings to community and educational settings in both New Jersey and New York City (NYC). For three years, he has been conducting federally-funded research evaluating two educational reintegration innovations in NYC—a re-enrollment assistance center and specialized alternative school for young ex-offenders. He is particularly qualified to comment on impediments to school reentry and promising policy and programmatic approaches to school reentry and juvenile aftercare more broadly.
