Abstract

In partnership with the National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC) and the State Justice Institute (SJI), the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) released the bench card Access to Juvenile Justice Irrespective of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression (SOGIE), provides guidance on working with youth or other juvenile court participants that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, and gender non-conforming youth (LGBTQ-GNC). The card discusses factors that should be considered throughout a young person's court involvement as well as unique considerations during specific stages of a case. The card highlights a need for ongoing training in this area and provides additional resources where judges can learn more about best practices.
