NCJFCJ To Hold Two Courses for Juvenile Court Practitioners

June 27, 2011

On September 19–23, 2011, in Reno, NV, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges will sponsor two courses for judges, masters, hearing officers, and other juvenile court practitioners.

The first course, "Evidence in Juvenile and Family Courts," will discuss how the rules of evidence apply in dispositional hearings, how the judge can know if hearsay can be admitted as evidence, rules that apply to expert witness testimony, and more. Registration is available online.

The second course, "Core College: Role of the Juvenile Court Judge," will focus on the leadership role of the judge, and how that role can be used to enhance the effectiveness of the court. It will prepare judges to make better informed decisions about the best interests of the child, family, and community. Registration is available online.
