Job o’ the Day: Care About Juvenile Justice in NY?

By Lauren Forbes

The Family Court Division of the New York City Law Department is seeking an experienced attorney for the Brooklyn office of its Juvenile Delinquency Prosecution Unit. Attorneys in this unit handle delinquency cases from investigation through trial, with the goal of furthering the best interests of the juvenile offenders, while protecting the public safety of the community.

They interview victims and witnesses; make and respond to pre-trial motions and appear daily in Family Court, where they conduct arraignments, suppression hearings and trials.

Applicants must have three years or more of litigation experience and must be an attorney in good standing admitted to practice in New York State. Previous criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare or related legal experience is required. Knowledge of Family Court procedure is preferred, as is a demonstrated commitment to public service, organizational abilities, an ability to work as part of a team and excellent interpersonal skills.
