Broken Contracts: Reimagining high-quality representation of youth in contract and appointed counsel systems


NJDC

Abstract

This report defines the different types of juvenile defense systems at play across the U.S., discusses key difference between public defender systems and other systems – including funding and other supports – that may affect how juvenile defense attorneys perform, and identifies key components of creating effective appointed counsel and contract systems. Some of the keys to a successful contract defender system include independence of defender appointments, a system that incorporates oversight and accountability of defense counsel; the standardization of professional obligations; setting and maintaining qualifications for counsel to engage in this specialized area of the law; just compensation and funding; and thoughtful data collection and analysis.
