Resources / Publication / A Preliminary Look at COVID Impacts on Juvenile, Family, and Tribal Courts

This preliminary study developed for the State Justice Institute( SJI) by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) attempted to take an initial look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on justice systems engaged with the most vulnerable populations: children and youth, families, and adults who have been abused, as well as youth involved in delinquency matters and families involved with family or tribal courts. This assessment appears to be one of the first efforts to explore the impacts of COVID-19 on courts, particularly tribal courts, serving underserved and marginalized communities.
