Mississippi Commission on Children's Justice
Line

Our Work
The Supreme Court created the Commission in April 2006. The initial work of the Commission laid the groundwork for the Supreme Courtís adoption of Uniform Rules of Youth Court Practice. The Supreme Court reestablished the Commission in June 2010. After more than three years of study of the stateís child protection systems, the Commission made recommendations in a report presented to the Supreme Court on Dec. 12, 2013.

The most significant of the Commissionís recommendations which have been put into place is the creation of the position of Resident Jurist to assist the Mississippi Supreme Court in performing its supervisory role with respect to effective administration of justice in Youth Courts. The Resident Jurist provides training and assistance to Youth Court judges and serves as a liaison to the Department of Human Services and other state agencies involved in child protection.
