juvenile-justice-reform_juvenile-defenseThe National Juvenile Defender Center has just released the National Juvenile Defense Standards. The standards represent a comprehensive understanding of the role and duties of the juvenile defender in the 21st century juvenile court system, and seek to strengthen and guide the ethical and professional performance of the juvenile defense attorney. The standards present a national approach to systematically achieving zealous, competent and diligent defense practice in juvenile court and set out a framework for representation that is anchored in the law, science, and professional codes of responsibility.
