Task Force for Youth Court Rules of Procedure

The Task Force for Youth Court Rules of Procedure was created by order of the Mississippi Supreme Court on Oct. 22, 2007, and charged with overseeing development of a set of uniform rules of procedure for Youth Courts. The Mississippi Judicial College developed proposed uniform rules, and the Task Force made extensive recommendations. The Mississippi Supreme Court adopted Uniform Rules of Youth Court Practice which became effective Jan. 8, 2009.
