Broken Contracts: Contract counsel toolkit


NJDC

Abstract

States, counties, and courts must actively work to ensure children receive the same quality of representation regardless of the type of lawyer assigned to represent each youth. One way to do this is to consider a system of contracting and oversight that enables independent attorney to benefit from the structure, management, training, mentorship, or support systems enjoyed by juvenile defense attorneys who work in salaried public defender systems. The toolkit provides a path forward for those who wish to reimagine their current system in a way that is targeted to improve access to and quality of juvenile defense counsel.
