Questions and Answers

Judicial Council of California. The Judicial Council of California ("Judicial Council"), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the chief policy making agency of the California judicial system.  The California Constitution directs the Judicial Council 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 Judicial Council also adopts rules for court administration, practice, and procedure, and performs other functions prescribed by law.  The Judicial Council’s Court Operations and Services Division, Center for Families, Children & the Courts ("CFCC") supports programs in court settings that improve practice and services for children, youth, parents, families, and other court users.

Interdisciplinary permanency training. A core service provided by CFCC is interdisciplinary education on permanency for children and non-minor dependents in foster care. The juvenile court plays a unique role in ensuring permanency for children, both in its supervision of the dependency case and its ability to convene all participants in the dependency system. Participants in permanency trainings include judges, parent and child attorneys, social workers, county counsel, probation officers, tribal representatives and advocates working with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), parents, juvenile dependency mediators, and other advocates and stakeholders.
