Practice in the Juvenile Court is uniquely challenging. The stakes are high, and the representation has far reaching effect. Whether you represent children and their families in care and protection proceedings, juvenile delinquency, or matters concerning children requiring assistance, you are all too familiar with the urgency felt by your clients, and the burden you carry when they turn to you to navigate them through this process. Juvenile Court judges deal with the issues presented in your cases in various ways, and they are given broad discretion to do so. This program identifies the factors which the panelists consider in reaching decisions, and includes practice tips for the attorneys on both sides of the case. The expert panel of judges is presented with several issues—those that arise in delinquency matters and child welfare matters—and asked to address those factors that play into their decision making.
Attorneys from all levels of experience benefit from hearing directly from the judges in this fast-paced format. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain invaluable insight into the judicial perspective, and be better prepared the next time you walk into court!
