Product Description

Law In A Nutshell: Juvenile Justice Administration focuses exclusively on the criminal and non-criminal misconduct of children that bring them within the jurisdiction of juvenile courts and examines law enforcement, judicial, and administrative responses to that misconduct. It deals with issues of children's rights only insofar as they relate to the processes of investigating and prosecuting juvenile offenders for delinquency and status-offenses. Like all Nutshells, it strives to provide a succinct exposition of the law for students studying juvenile justice, for lawyers who do not regularly practice in juvenile court, and for legislators and policy officials involved in juvenile justice law reform efforts.

Table of Contents includes:
Juvenile Court;
Jurisdiction Over Delinquent and Status Offenders;
Police and Juveniles: Pre-Trial Criminal Procedure;
Preliminary Procedures: Intake and Diversion;
Pretrial Detention;
Waiver of Juvenile Court Jurisdiction;
Adjudication of Delinquency: Procedural Rights at Trial Dispositional Decision.

Don't let their small size fool you: West's Law in a Nutshell series represents the depth and breadth of the law in over a hundred different areas. Nutshells have a loyal following who swear by their succinct and easy to understand treatment of the law, and Law In A Nutshell: Juvenile Justice Administration is a great illustration that learning the law doesn't have to be dry and confusing.
