Juvenile Law Section

group of diverse young people The Section creates an opportunity for further discussion and implementation of the recommendations of this significant report. Unlike a bar committee, a bar section allows for broader participation and may include non-lawyer professionals who work with juveniles or on juvenile-justice issues. The Juvenile Law Section provides a name which is broad enough to encompass the many different areas of practice involving children and youth. The Section's intent is to be inclusive of defenders, prosecutors, judges, and service providers to allow for cross-system training and collaboration, which can lead to improved outcomes for young people and the community.

Areas of legal practice the section will address include: child welfare, juvenile justice, status offenses: truancy, at-risk youth, and children in need of services and the civil legal needs of youth.

Section Members: To join the section list serve and for general section questions, please send your email address and Bar number to sections@wsba.org. For more information and to get involved with the Section, contact the section co-chairs, Daewoo Kim
