The Performance Guidelines for Quality and Effective Juvenile Delinquency Representation  are available Here

In consultation with juvenile defenders from across the Commonwealth and national experts JDAP has developed Performance Guidelines for Quality and Effective Juvenile Delinquency Representation  (Guidelines).   JDAP's goal is to provide juvenile defenders, contract counsel, and assigned counsel, as well as the leadership of public defender offices with a clear set of guidelines that define evidence-based best practices for attorneys practicing in delinquency court.   The Guidelines recognized and incorporate Pennsylvania's Rules of Professional Conduct, Rules of Juvenile  Court Procedure and the Juvenile Act.
