Maximizing the Juvenile Court System for Young Children

Session Time

June 27

When the State intervenes and places a child into protective custody, not only the judge, but all involved must get it right for the child and the parents from day one. In order to do that, a meaningful Prehearing Conference paves the way for a meaningful Protective Custody Hearing. The National Council of Juvenile & Family Court Judges' Enhanced Resource Guidelines: Improving Court Practice in Abuse & Neglect Cases is the premier source for how to get both right. Participants will learn about these best practices and apply them to case scenarios
