ABSTRACT & CITATION
This fact sheet for policy advocates highlights promising ideas for reform of juvenile indigent defense in the areas of training, practice standards, communications and collaboration, tools and resources, funding, and advocacy. It briefly describes recent innovations by legislatures, courts, and defender associations in a number of states. These recommendations are summaries of more extensive proposals by juvenile justice reformers, and especially draw on the work done by Models for Change and the Juvenile Indigent Defense Action Network.
