Welcome to the Juvenile Justice & Children's Rights Section
The Juvenile Justice & Children's Rights Section follows former Gov. Hunt's Commission on Juvenile Crime and Justice. Goals include: encourage pro bono work in areas of law affecting children; provide training and education for attorneys, judges and the public; and raise the status of juvenile representation as well as the standard of practice in those areas.
The section, with currently 150
members, sponsors CLE programs and services; provides members with
a substantive newsletter; and helps mold the association's

The newsletter, Juvenile Justice and Children's Rights, offers an
