JTIP: Coming to a Defender Training Near You!

The inaugural class of JTIP trainers were certified by the National Juvenile Defender Center this past week in Chicago.  Approximately thirty states were represented, and the remaining states will have representatives trained and certified in the coming year.

JTIP is the Juvenile Training Immersion Program developed by the National Juvenile Defender Center and Kristin Henning from Georgetown, along with other nationally-recognized juvenile delinquency experts.  JTIP provides an intensive, standardized program to train defense attorneys on a wide variety of topics ranging from basic trial skills to the compassionate and appropriate way to deal with LGBTQ youth.

In Indiana, the first chapter (probation revocations) will be partially rolled out at the Indiana Public Defender Council juvenile delinquency CLE on October 4, 2013.  Hopefully, in 2014, IPDC will be able to sponsor a multi-day juvenile track during the annual Trial Practice Institute.
