PAST CLE PROGRAMS


In re Gault: 50 Years & Beyond

Join Chase College of Law and the Children's Law Center as we celebrate and review the history of In re Gault, decided 50 years ago, which held that children are individuals who possess their own constitutional rights. Sessions will provide an overview of In Re Gault, a discussion of the ethics involved in right and role to counsel in juvenile court, a snapshot of reform efforts in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana, and a discussion of potential expansions of Gault in delinquency matters and into areas including family law, immigration, and post-conviction.

AGENDA

8:00 a.m.    Registration and Coffee

Hon. Karen Thomas, Campbell County Juvenile Court Judge

*1.5 ethics/professionalism credit CLE  

The role of the juvenile defender is highly complex and specialized:  skilled lawyers are essential to ensure due process and promote fundamental fairness.  The Rules of Professional Conduct apply to juvenile defenders, but the role and attorneys’ obligations to clients are often misunderstood.  In 2012, the National Juvenile Defender Center published the National Juvenile Defense Standards, which reflect a comprehensive picture of the role and duties of juvenile defenders and seek to guide attorneys in managing ethical questions and professional performance.  This session will focus on how the Rules of Professional Conduct and Standards apply to children’s attorneys, and opportunities for improved practice.

10:30 a.m.  History, Reforms and Opportunities to Build on Gault
Kim Brooks Tandy, Juvenile Justice Consultant
Amanda Mullins Bear, Managing Attorney, Children’s Law Center
Professor Amy Halbrook, Chase College of Law

*1.5 general credit CLE  

Reform efforts in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana have significantly changed the juvenile justice landscape since Gault.  Presenters will discuss the history of reforms in each state; right to counsel and the role of counsel in each state; and opportunities to extend the right to counsel afforded by Gault to other contexts including family court, immigration matters and post-convictions.
