NJDC collaborates with nine Regional Juvenile Defender Centers. Each Center coordinates regional activities, including helping to compile and analyze juvenile indigent defense data, facilitating organizing and networking opportunities for juvenile defenders, offering targeted, state-based training and technical assistance, and providing case support specifically designed for complex or high profile cases.

For more information about the activities of any Regional Center or to join its network, please visit its web site or contact its director. To join the email listserv for your region, please sign up on our listserv page.
