Juvenile Justice Handbook
The Handbook incorporates applicable requirements of the New Mexico Children’s Code, Children’s Court and other Supreme Court rules, and case law affecting juvenile cases. It summarizes the steps in the legal process, describes the roles and responsibilities of a number of the participants, explains the hearings that may take place, and addresses such topics as competency, defenses, discovery, evidence, and sentencing.
This is a project o the Corinne Wolf Children's Law Center, the New Mexico Judicial Education Center, and the New Mexico Children’s Court Judges Association.
