The JTIP Summer Academy is an annual one-week intensive training program comprised of JTIP lessons taught by juvenile defense experts recruited from across the country. The 2019 JTIP Summer Academy will be held June 16-22, 2019at Georgetown Law in Washington, DC. The Academy is intended for both new and experienced juvenile defenders. New defenders will develop the skills they need to zealously represent their clients. More experienced juvenile defenders will have the opportunity to refine their skills and enhance their effectiveness by employing defense strategies that incorporate the unique aspects of representing youth in delinquency cases. The program is also designed to build community and equip juvenile defenders with skills they can share with colleagues in their home state. The JTIP Summer Academy is hosted by the National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC) and Georgetown Law’s Juvenile Justice Clinic & Initiative.
