• 1:00 p.m. Where Are We Now? Child Protection Three Years After the Governor’s Task Force, Mark Ireland
Reform of the child protection system began in large part due to a StarTribune exposé of the child protection system. This exposure led to Governor Dayton’s forming a task force that made sweeping recommendations to the child protection system. Judge Ireland will discuss the challenges and triumphs of those recommendations and provide unique insight into the court’s role in improving the lives of children through the child protection system.
Ramsey County District Court Judge Mark Ireland was elected in 2010 and reelected in 2016. Judge Ireland served as a judge in the Juvenile Court division for four years. He was involved extensively in improving the court’s response to child protection.
