Description
This is both a significant and a necessary work. It is an expansive treatise on juvenile justice legislation and case decisions, expertly woven together, coherent, and clear. Further, it richly details the law which juvenile court practitioners need to know and to use in order for the juvenile court to realize its mandate as a legal forum. A legally based approach has not always served to underpin juvenile justice. The juvenile court, through most of its history, relied neither on law nor lawyers. But today's juvenile court is a blend of jurisprudence and social intervention that must begin with law and be governed throughout its proceedings by a legal regimen.
The great majority of judges who now preside over juvenile court hearings have taken their positions subsequent to the May 15, 1967 In re Gault decision, the United States Supreme Court holding that constitutionalized this court. While, in the main, they differ from their predecessors and honor law as the vital foundation of their day-to-day rulings, the temptations inherent in this office to abandon the law in the interest of assisting or correcting youngsters remain. It is especially critical that knowledged attorneys, mindful of similar temptations, hold this court on its rightful course.
Everyone, or almost everyone, has an opinion on the causes and correctives of delinquency, on how youngsters should be dealt with in and out of court, and as to what parents should do or what should be done to parents to prevent or curb their juveniles' law violations, misbehaviors, or neglect. Some opt for the benevolent exercise of judicial system authority; others prefer to omit benevolence; still others would restrict judicial authority and curb this court's jurisdiction by funneling more youths into the criminal justice system, excluding status offense misbehaviors from its powers, or narrowing the entry door to the court for what some consider to be cases of child neglect.
