    The New York City Law Department is accepting applications from admitted attorneys with a minimum of one year of litigation experience for the position of Assistant Corporation Counsel (ACC) in the Bronx borough office of the Family Court Division’s Juvenile Delinquency Unit.  The ACC will be assigned as a member of the newly formed Juvenile Rehabilitation and Community Safety Team.

     This team is designed to implement an enhanced community-based approach to the handling of juvenile delinquency cases referred to our office that originate in a specific geographic area of Bronx County. The ACC will be assigned to this specific geographic area in the Bronx that has a high rate of juvenile delinquency referrals, and which also has the highest number of arrests of youth who live in the same geographic area from which their cases are referred.  This position presents a unique opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and expertise, form unique relationships, direct specific resources to these cases, and to assist various stakeholders in addressing the issues outside of the context of particular cases.

     Among their duties, the ACC will be responsible for reviewing and analyzing delinquency statistics and related demographic data from that area.  They will strategize how to reduce or prevent delinquency within the community.  They will regularly attend community meetings, and they will regularly meet with law enforcement personnel.

     The ACC will carry a caseload and will appear in court regularly. The ACC will be responsible for all aspects of the cases from referral to disposition.  This includes but is not limited to: (1) Interviewing victims, civilian witnesses and police officers, gathering and analyzing evidence, during the investigation stage of the case; thereby determining whether the case can be filed or must be declined. (2) If the case can be filed in court, deciding whether diversion is appropriate; (3) If the case is filed, drafting depositions and filing petitions; (4) Preparing and conducting pre-petition detention hearings, which determine the custodial status of the youth pending the fact-finding hearing; (5) Preparing and conducting pre-trial hearings to determine the admissibility of evidence; (6) Preparing and conducting fact-finding hearings (similar to trials in adult criminal cases), which determine whether the juvenile committed the acts alleged; and (6) Preparing and conducting dispositional hearings, where it is determined what services would best ensure the rehabilitation of the youth; and therefore the safety of the community. The ACC will report to the Team Leader, Assistant Deputy Borough Chief, Deputy Borough Chief, or Borough Chief.

     The Family Court Division is ideal for attorneys with a passion for juvenile justice and the ability to investigate cases, analyze and then advocate for appropriate outcomes on a case-by-case basis, and conduct hearings and trials in a fast-paced environment with the ultimate goals of rehabilitation of the youth and, therefore the enhancement of the safety of the community.

     The successful Applicant must be admitted and in good standing with the NYS Bar and have at least one year of litigation experience, preferably in criminal law, following graduation from an ABA accredited law school.

     Applicants must possess excellent judgment; exceptional organizational abilities; strong leadership skills; solid knowledge of municipal criminal law, the Family Court Act and evidentiary issues; and strong interpersonal skills. Applicants must also be creative problem-solvers with the ability to recognize and respond to the wide range of legal, social and personal issues that often present themselves in the youth, families, court personnel, and community members with whom they will be engaged in the course of their work.
