Juvenile Training Immersion Program (JTIP) Summer Academy at Georgetown
The National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC) and Georgetown Law are partnering to launch the JTIP Summer Academy, a one-week intensive training program for juvenile defenders. The 2016 JTIP Summer Academy will be held June 19-25, 2016 in Washington, DC at Georgetown Law.
The Juvenile Training Immersion Program (JTIP) is a training curriculum that recognizes juvenile defense as a specialized practice and enhances the capacity of juvenile defenders to provide high-quality representation to their clients at every stage of the delinquency system. JTIP provides both substantive legal analysis and skills training. It was developed by the National Juvenile Defender Center, in collaboration with experts and leaders in the juvenile defense community from around the country, along with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Models for Change Initiative.
The JTIP Summer Academy is intended for both new and experienced juvenile defenders. It will equip new defenders with the skills they need to zealously represent their juvenile clients. More experienced defenders will have the opportunity to refine their skills and heighten their effectiveness by tailoring their defense strategies to the unique aspects of delinquency representation.
The JTIP Summer Academy will be open to a limited number of participants each year.
