Practice & Policy Resources
To improve the quality of and access to juvenile defense, NJDC provides a wide range of resources aimed at juvenile defenders’ courtroom practice or juvenile indigent defense reforms. As a clearinghouse of information for juvenile defenders, NJDC strives to provide a vast array of resources to our community. For NJDC-produced work, please visit the Our Work portion of our website. For other materials, we provide this section on Practice & Policy Resources.
