Overview

Casebook focuses on three themes: legal and administrative consequences of regulating children rather than adults; procedural and substantive implications of a justice system that emphasizes treatment rather than punishment; and tensions between discretion and rules that occur in a system that treats children rather than punishes adults. Incorporates empirical evaluations and presents psychological research into controversial issues such as gender and racial disparities in juvenile justice administration. Examines the pretrial detention of juveniles and examines how and when states try youths in criminal court rather than in juvenile court. Also explores the alternative sentencing options available to juvenile courts.
