The New Rules

Publication year: 2005  |  Cataloged on: Apr 04, 2011

This publication provides an overview of Pennsylvania's Rules of Juvenile Court Procedure for Delinquency Matters, which were officially adopted in April 2005 by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. These rules of juvenile court procedure will go into effect in stages, beginning in the fall of 2005. They will override all local court rules that govern juvenile justice practice and procedure. The rules simplify practice and procedure, provide uniformity, and reflect current practices of the majority of the judicial districts.
