Demonstration Sites

What is a Demonstration Site?

An FJI demonstration site is a jurisdiction that wants to improve legal representation for both parents and children and is willing to commit to utilizing an interdisciplinary model for representation and/or to lowering attorney caseloads consistent with the FJI recommendations. In addition, FJI demonstration sites must be focused on utilizing data and a continuous quality improvement process to measure qualitative and quantitative outcomes.
