Juvenile Justice System: Law and Process is an introduction to the procedures and law of the entire juvenile system, civil and criminal. It bridges the gap between the introductory juvenile delinquency texts and the law school case-texts. This book illustrates the inner workings of the juvenile justice system with authentic case law, research and behavioral sciences theory. Readers will see children through the eyes of parents, police, social workers, defending attorneys, prosecuting attorneys, judges and others who impact upon the child in his or her journey through the system. Each state by statute has created its own juvenile justice system. This book gives an overview and brings sense to a very decentralized system. Uses a systems approach, which covers the juvenile justice system completely. Problems, stories, and examples give students a feel for the problem. Unique format actively involves the student with highlighted key terms and concepts, brain exercises, and a mock trial. Uses edited versions of law cases as a learning tool. Includes an explanation on how to read law cases.
