In 2005, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) published the Juvenile Delinquency Guidelines: Improving Court Practice in Juvenile Delinquency Cases (JDG). Over the years, the JDG has served as the guidepost for juvenile courts across the country. The JDG identifies the essential elements of effective juvenile justice procedures and describes recommended practice. However, in the intervening decade, much has changed in juvenile justice; from landmark Supreme Court decisions that ended the death penalty and solitary confinement for juveniles to changes in practice as a result of brain science. In order for the JDG to remain the defining resource for juvenile justice professionals, the NCJFCJ, with funding from the State Justice Institute, has updated this seminal publication. We would like to invite you to join us for a webinar where we will unveil the new Enhanced Juvenile Justice Guidelines!
