Questions and Answers

The Judicial Council of California (JCC), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the chief policy-making agency of the California judicial branch. The California Constitution directs the JCC to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and making recommendations annually to the Governor and the Legislature. The JCC also adopts rules for court administration, practice, and procedure, and performs other functions prescribed by law.

The Judicial Council of California (JCC), Center for Families, Children & the Courts (CFCC), has received funding to hire a qualified partner to collect and share data necessary to complete the Judicial Council’s STAR Court Evaluation.  The Judicial Council is evaluating one of California’s girls’ courts to determine its process and outcomes. The Los Angeles STAR Court (Succeed Through Achievement and Resilience) is a unique program for youth who have been or are at risk of being involved with CSEC (Commercially Sexually Exploited Children).

The Judicial Council seeks the services of researchers with expertise in CSEC research in general and the STAR Court specifically. Existing relationships with the Los Angeles County Probation Department would also be helpful. The contracted researchers will assist with data collection and case file review for all girls entering the juvenile delinquency system in Los Angeles County between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2016.  They will assist in selecting a matched sample of approximately 400 cases to compare to the girls who entered the STAR Court during the same timeframe. They will compile data from electronic probation files and court and probation paper case files for the approximately 400 matched sample cases. The data collection and case file review will occur on site at the Los Angeles County Probation Department.
