2020 Teacher's Manual forthcoming
Tags: Juvenile Law
Now in its third edition, this casebook provides a unique teaching tool for examining the issues relating to children charged with crime in the juvenile courts. It is an innovative blend of the analytical, conceptual, practical and ethical considerations arising in that context. The author has drawn on her many years of experience teaching juvenile justice courses and representing delinquents in the juvenile courts of California and Texas, as well as on innovative scholarship in this area of the law.
The casebook examines the history of the juvenile court system in America, the Supreme Court jurisprudence, the various stages of delinquency proceedings, the ethical dilemmas of representing minors, the right to treatment in juvenile correctional facilities, waivers, determinate sentencing, blended and extended jurisdiction, and international and comparative law. The materials include updated United States Supreme Court, state cases, and statutes, forms, ABA Standards, law review and related articles, new recommendations on the role of juvenile defense counsel, new social science research, and notes and questions.
Accompanying this edition is a teacher’s manual that provides roleplays for client interviews and delinquency hearings and additional handouts that will help law students prepare for representing youth in the justice system.
