Description

The purpose of this text is to explore and define the important and emerging component of juvenile justice in the United States. As a field of study, juvenile justice has been largely neglected, and a definitive study has not been made. We judge that the history of juvenile justice, the processing of youth, the philosophy of juvenile justice, the detention of juveniles, and the diversion of youth from the juvenile justice system should all be included in discussing juvenile justice. -- Provided by publisher
