Information

Why Attend?

Representing a juvenile is very different from representing an adult

  • Understand the structure of the juvenile justice system
  • Learn the many dispositional alternatives available
  • Hear what the most important players—judge, probation officer, and GAL—are looking for
  • Gain valuable best practices and tips for effective representation

GAL for Children Continuing Credit Hours: 2.0

The Juvenile and Domestic Relations (J&DR) District Court shares many of the characteristics of circuit courts, but with no jury and limited discovery among other differences. The J&DR has an additional duty to protect the confidentiality and privacy of juveniles and their families, and to emphasize rehabilitation. The options available to the alleged or adjudged delinquent minor are therefore much broader than those offered to an adult in any other forum.

This seminar will uncover all the options, from the detention hearing to ultimate disposition, with a focus on available dispositional alternatives offered by many jurisdictions. Learn how to best represent a juvenile criminal defendant from a faculty offering important perspectives — judge, probation officer, guardian ad litem, and criminal defense lawyer.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
