Many children are unaware of how to seal their juvenile records. With the assistance of the Houston Bar Association and Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program, we will be training lawyers to help youth seal their records.
SWJDC is concerned about juvenile justice policy and improving conditions for children. As part of this effort, the Center can assist with assessments, status reports and educational projects.
Limited funding is available to provide families grants to help pay for the cost of experts. If you are trying a case which requires an expert and it will have a substantial impact on juvenile defense in the region, you may apply for financial assistance for your clients.
