Get Technical Assistance at Youth, Rights & Justice

The Juvenile Law Resource Center (JLRC) assists attorneys representing parents, children and youth in juvenile court proceedings throughout Oregon. The JLRC provides written resources including case law updates, sample motions, practice guides and issue briefs. We periodically offer trainings for lawyers in areas identified as most important to practitioners. Finally, we are available to consult with attorneys on individual cases.
