Youth, Rights & Justice: What We Do

  • We are appointed by the court to represent children in foster care, parents in the child dependency system, and youth in the juvenile court system.
  • We created the SchoolWorks Program to advocate for vulnerable children struggling in school.
  • We publish the Juvenile Law Reader quarterly to provide practice tips, case law developments, and other resources to Oregon Juvenile Court practitioners.
  • Through the Juvenile Law Resource Center, we provide immediate, strategic advice to lawyers practicing juvenile law throughout the state.
  • We leverage our experience with individual cases to promote systemic change through legislative advocacy.
