1. The chief judge may appoint and may remove for cause with due process an associate juvenile judge. The associate juvenile judge shall be an attorney admitted to practice law in this state, and shall be qualified for duties by training and experience.

2. The associate juvenile judge shall have the same jurisdiction to conduct juvenile court proceedings and to issue orders, findings, and decisions as the judge of the juvenile court, except that the associate juvenile judge shall not issue warrants. However, the appointing judge may limit the exercise of juvenile court jurisdiction by the associate juvenile judge.

3. The parties to a proceeding heard by an associate juvenile judge are entitled to appeal the order, finding, or decision of an associate juvenile judge, in the manner of an appeal from orders, findings, or decisions of district court judges.
