Webinar To Address National Juvenile Defender Standards
March 13, 2013
On March 20, 2013, at 1 p.m. ET, the National Juvenile Justice Network will host the 1-hour Webinar “The National Juvenile Defense Standards: Why They Matter for Advocates.” The National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC) recently released the Standards, which seek to strengthen and clarify juvenile defense practice and policy, elevate the practice of juvenile law, and improve the delivery of legal services to all indigent youth. NJDC managing attorney Tim Curry will discuss:
- Where defender obligations under standards and juvenile policy advocacy intersect.
- How defenders and advocates can work together to promote systemic reform.
- How the standards guide the relationship between the defender, the child client, and the child’s parents.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change initiative funded the development of the Standards. Learn more about the initiative.
