About the course

This North Carolina Judicial College course is intended for judges with experience presiding over juvenile proceedings. The course examines a specialized topic that relates to juvenile proceedings. Because juvenile law involves abuse, neglect, dependency, termination of parental rights, juvenile justice, education, and health care matters, the specialized topic will vary from course offering to course offering. Past courses have addressed: the intersection between school issues and juvenile proceedings; fatherhood issues in abuse, neglect, and dependency actions; and serious and violent offenders in juvenile delinquency court.

The course is designed to provide district court judges an opportunity to work with their peers in a small group setting. It is a multi-day course that is offered every other year, typically in the Spring of even years (i.e., May 2014, 2016, etc). It meets the continuing judicial education requirements of six hours each biennium in order to maintain juvenile certification.
