Celebrating 40 years of successful advocacy, Juvenile Law Center is the oldest non-profit, public interest law firm for children in the country. Established in 1975, Juvenile Law Center initially represented individual youth in a wide range of proceedings in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Over time, Juvenile Law Center expanded its advocacy for children across Pennsylvania and, by the early 1990s, was addressing child welfare and justice system reform nationwide. Over the last 15 years, we have focused exclusively on legal issues affecting adolescents and older youth in those systems.
