2012 SURVEY OF JUVENILE LAW
NOVA LAW REVIEW (2013)

Abstract

The Florida intermediate appellate courts decided a series of cases in the child welfare field ranging from issues related to representation of parents in dependency proceedings and proper procedure at shelter hearings, to a range of issues in termination of parental rights (TPR) cases this past survey year. The intermediate courts ruled on a lesser number of delinquency area cases. As is true with each survey, decisions in the delinquency area that are linked to issues of criminal procedure, and which are not unique to the juvenile delinquency field, are not covered.' Finally, this article summarizes the symposium held at Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center regarding the American Bar Association Model Act Governing Representation of Children in Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency Proceedings.
