Have you ever implemented a new evidence-based policy, and the results were not what you expected? Adopting, implementing and sustaining high quality, effective use of legal and evidence-based pretrial practices is a complex undertaking. The extent to which pretrial practice and policy change efforts achieve their intended outcomes depends on the process by which they are put in to use. The emerging field of implementation science has taught us that this process has as much impact on outcomes as the practice itself.
If you’re determined to make your implementation efforts a success, the University of Pretrial has a course to help. This intensive, four-week introduction to the mechanisms of effective implementation is intended for pretrial practitioners, stakeholders, advocates, policymakers, and technical assistance providers. You will be introduced to tools and techniques to facilitate a successful transition from policy to practice, and address barriers to maximizing liberty, maximizing court appearance, and maximizing public safety.

The course includes weekly live interactions with PJI faculty and guest speakers on Thursdays at 3 p.m. Eastern, an online community space for discussion with classmates, and self-directed assignments and activities to complete on your own schedule. Participants are asked to invest 3 – 5 hours per week in the course, and in that time will enjoy the benefit of experienced faculty, extensive resources, a small class size, and a curriculum focused on real-world applications. Join us, and bring your implementation challenges to the table; you’ll leave with new skills for achieving your desired outcomes.
