This casebook takes a comprehensive approach to teaching law students all of the issues involved in representing a minor who has been accused of violating the law, including the history and evolution of the juvenile justice system, the rights of minors in interrogation, searches and monitoring both at home and at school, and the procedures and rights in delinquency court. The casebook follows the life of a juvenile delinquency case from the first contact with authorities through sentencing in either juvenile or adult court. A Teacher’s Manual is also provided to assist professors in preparing for and presenting in class.
This book is part of the Lawyering Series, edited by Roger I. Abrams of Northeastern Law School.
If you are a professor teaching in this field you may request a complimentary copy.
