Welcome to CITA’s online Juvenile Non-Offender Benchbook, an invaluable resource for judicial officers presiding over cases involving youth.

We have now moved to an online publishing system for the Benchbook, which allows us to make available updated information in a more timely fashion. Many chapters have now been updated from the previously available version, and all chapters can be accessed by clicking on the chapter title at right. The entire 2011 PDF edition of the Benchbook is also available for download.

Once all chapters have been updated, we plan to produce one final PDF version of the Benchbook. Going forward, we will focus our resources on updates only to the online version of the Benchbook.
