Critical Judgment: How Juvenile and Family Court Judges Can Help Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy

Critical Judgment

The National Campaign and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) have joined forces to help address teen pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy among single, young adults in Juvenile and Family Courts. This publication provides the results of a survey of NCJFCJ members on teen and unplanned pregnancy and related issues as well as a summary of focus groups held with Juvenile and Family Court judges, a detailed case study of how one Miami judge deals with teen and unplanned pregnancy, and a brief look at efforts from other localities.
