After nearly two years of hard work, a compact practice manual on defending youth in delinquency proceedings is now available. This manual is designed to be a portable reference and a starting point for working these types of cases. This manual includes law, procedure and strategic tips as well as relevant social science information. It has been reviewed by seasoned practitioners both inside and outside of West Virginia, and was developed as part of Lori Waller’s participation with the Rural Ambassadors program of the Mid-Atlantic Juvenile Defender Center (MAJDC). You can access the manual in the Research Center.
