Travis County Model Court: Juvenile Law Basics for the CPS Attorney
Juvenile justice laws in Texas are a unique hybrid of civil and criminal laws. Juveniles benefit from heightened criminal-law protections the US Constitution, statutes, and case law afford them. At the same time, juvenile cases are viewed through a best interest civil standard that allows professionals in the judicial system flexibility in determining appropriate outcomes based on the individual needs and circumstances of each child. This session provides an overview of the juvenile justice system, juvenile law, and how the law is applied on an individual level and is geared towards the child welfare attorney who may experience aspects of the juvenile justice system when representing children or parents in CPS cases.
