Juvenile Training Program


Each year the Juvenile Division of the Los Angeles Public Defender’s Office hosts an annual training seminar for lawyers and youth advocates who work with youth in dependency and delinquency court. The Juvenile Division has hosted this seminar for 30 years. The seminar usually draws approximately 250 attendees from private law offices and public defender offices around the state of California. Each year the seminar presenters are chosen because they reflect the most current legal trends and knowledge in the field of juvenile justice and advocacy. In addition to excellent training, attendees receive continuing education hours and the latest version of an important legal manual “A Practical Guide to Juvenile Delinquency Law” written by our office’s juvenile appellate specialist.
