In 2016, the General Assembly passed new legislation designed to improve outcomes for children involved with the juvenile court system.

Several initiatives and local practices are also impacting the representation of children in juvenile court.

This manuscript discusses ways in which these laws and initiatives are changing juvenile court practice for attorneys handling both child welfare and juvenile delinquency cases. 

It also addresses the following emerging issues:

  • The concurrent planning law in child welfare cases
  • Preventing school suspensions for juveniles with special education needs
  • Post-disposition advocacy tools for juvenile defenders
  • Keeping older juveniles out of court through misdemeanor diversion programs
  • Addressing ethical dilemmas in juvenile court
