New Materials – Pocket Gault

On May 15th, we will be acknowledging the 50th anniversary of In re Gault, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that guaranteed children the same due process rights as adults in delinquency court.  To make sure every lawyer is properly equipped for this monumental event, we have uploaded a PDF version of the pocket Gault booklets to our Materials for Defenders page.  The booklets give a very detailed summary of the historic case and succinct summaries of other cases related to the need for a child to have the right to an attorney, right to notice of charges, right to remain silent, and right to a full hearing on the merits of the case.  Our office also has a limited number of physical copies of the booklets available on request.
