Supporting the Nation's Judicial System & the Public it Serves


Putting Children and Families First in Dependency Case Management and Scheduling

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC), in partnership with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), funded by State Justice Institute, synthesized best practices in juvenile and family court and case management principles to develop an adaptable and responsive online training curriculum. The curriculum helps courts assess their adherence to principles of case management and scheduling and investigate research-supported strategies for increasing effective case management in dependency cases.
