NCSC Trends in State Courts 2014
Published Jul 2, 2014, Mulitple
National Center for State Courts' (NCSC) Trends in State Courts 2014 focuses on what courts can do, and are doing, to serve the needs of society’s most vulnerable groups: juveniles and the elderly. Articles in two special sections focus on many aspects of juvenile justice and elder issues, such as the Models for Change Juvenile Justice Initiative funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, judicial leadership in addressing juvenile mental health issues, elder courts, and Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders.
Trends 2014 also addresses other topics of interest to state courts, such as improvement of jury service via technology, procedural fairness, and access to justice commissions. A new section highlights court accomplishments in each state.
NCSC is Models for Change strategic ally.
