National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC)

About the NJDC

Overview

  • Founded: 1999

Mission and History

Founded in 1999, the National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC) is non-profit organization that supports the criminal defense attorneys who represent children in juvenile court. In 2005, the National Juvenile Defender Center separated from the American Bar Association (ABA) to become an independent organization.

NJDC gives juvenile defense attorneys a platform to exchange information, build partnerships, improve advocacy skills and participate in the national debate over juvenile justice. 

The mission of the NJDC is to “promote justice for all children by ensuring excellence in juvenile defense.” Many of the top juvenile defense attorneys in private practice belong to this trusted organization.
