Services Provided

Beginning December 2013, the program was revamped to begin what is called the JJP Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) Project. This expansion of the JJP addresses the issue of disproportionate minority contact, through a holistic approach, by providing legal representation to children who are in multiple systems including the criminal justice system, disparate educational systems, the mental health system and foster care system. The project currently has the following three components:

(1) representation

(2) training for community organizations and attorneys involved in these systems, as well as policy advocacy through education for lawmakers, and

(3) participation in impact litigation.

Eligibility Guidelines 

This project has no income qualifications and is currently funded through a grant from the Houston Endowment as well as Law School support. The project has also been awarded an Equal Justice Works Fellow to oversee the representation through 2016.
