Welcome to the Center for Children's Law and Policy

The Center for Children’s Law and Policy (CCLP) is a public interest law and policy organization focused on reform of juvenile justice and other systems that affect troubled and at-risk children, and protection of the rights of children in those systems. The Center’s work covers a range of activities including research, writing, public education, media advocacy, training, technical assistance, administrative and legislative advocacy, and litigation.

The Center for Children’s Law and Policy seeks a new staff member with extensive experience in juvenile justice system advocacy or reform. CCLP is looking for a committed and creative person who wants to work in a supportive and exciting environment on challenging issues involving children.
