Legal Representation of Minority Youth
Group: Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice
The intent of this study was to examine the issue of legal representation of minority youth in Utah’s juvenile justice system. A large component of the impetus for this project was the observation by many in the justice system that there may be notable disparity in not only the appointment of counsel to youth in general, but particularly the dimension of legal representation for those youth who are of a minority ethnic/racial background as compared to those who are not. Supported primarily by the Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness, the present study took a three-pronged approach to answering questions related to such legal representation, utilizing statistical/quantitative data, and qualitative data derived from interviews with both attorneys and juveniles.
