Warren believes that bullying should not be a criminal offense, and shared her stance at the Northeastern University School of Law symposium on March 30 titled: “Should School Bullies Face Criminal Punishment?” The symposium featured a full-day schedule of panels discussing the legal implications of school bullying. <p>Warren says that although it is understandable why the public seeks to exact harsh punishments on bullies who have caused psychological damage, harm and even death to others, school bullies are still children and have a limited capacity of understanding the repercussions of their actions. Instead, Warren believes that these children need to be rehabilitated.

The symposium, called “Pushed Too Far: The Evolving Legal Implications Of School Bullying”, features a significant number of experts in the legal profession. <p>“This is a great opportunity for us to share our view of this issue with such a prestigious group of legal experts” said Web Wise Kids President and CEO Judi Westberg Warren. “I look forward to a provocative and engaging discussion on this important issue”. <p>The panel is titled: “Should School Bullies Face Criminal Punishment?” and will be part of a full day schedule on the legal implications of school bullying. <p>Additional panels will include topics like “Hazing in Higher Education” and “Cyberbullying and the First Amendment”. The day will include keynote presentations from David Sullivan, District Attorney for the Northwestern District of Massachusetts and Gary Mayerson, lead counsel for the plaintiffs in the recent case of TK v. New York City Department of Education. <p>“The Web Wise Kids mission is to teach kids, parents and the community the value of making safe and wise choices in a technologically evolving world,” said Warren. “And I look forward to contributing my voice on this topic with the legal community”. <p>To learn more about Warren’s stance on the legal implications of school bullying, click this link to watch a short video: <a>http://youtu.be/1ESfPeM9SEQ</a> <p>About Web Wise Kids: <p>Web Wise Kids (http://webwisekids.org) is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Southern California with satellite offices in the Northwest and Washington, D.C.
