Session 4: Integrity of Tribal Juvenile Court Process as a Foundation - Implications of Rights and Evidence in Juvenile Court Process (Webinar)

Event Dates
The Tribal Youth Resource Center will be hosting a free five-part virtual learning series to support the development or enhancement of Tribal juvenile justice codes, policy, and procedures.

This session will survey the rights provisions and protections within the Model Indian Juvenile Code.

Participants will engage in and discuss evidence provisions and the implications of more clearly defining processes and procedures related to confessions, interrogations, and admissions.

The session will also cover the potential for increased statutory rights for juveniles within a Tribal juvenile justice system (from the Indian Civil Rights Act to the Model Indian Juvenile Code provisions), as well as the right to counsel.
