National Juvenile Defender Center Releases Juvenile Defense Standards
February 25, 2013
The National Juvenile Defender Center has released “National Juvenile Defense Standards.” The standards provide comprehensive information about the role and duties of the juvenile defenders in the modern juvenile court system and provide a framework for representation anchored in law, science, and professional codes of responsibility.
Access the standards online or request a hard copy.
MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change initiative funded the development of the standards. Learn more about the initiative.
