About Court Clinics

Evaluations sometimes address specific forensic issues including competency to stand trial or to participate in a legal proceeding, criminal responsibility, and/or aid in sentencing. Court clinic services also include case consultation, expert testimony, crisis intervention, treatment planning, and referral for further services. The JCCP maintains a familiarity with the resources currently available within the communities and regions served by these courts and works proactively with local providers to divert juveniles from unnecessary court involvement.
