Annotation: CHALLENGES TO JUVENILE JUSTICE ARE CONSIDERED, AND A STUDY COMPARING THE PROCEDURES IN TWO COURTS FOR HANDLING 16-YEAR-OLD OFFENDERS IS RREVIEWED.
Abstract: A LAW PROFESSOR EXPLAINS THAT UNFOUNDED ATTACKS AGAINST THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM HAVE OFTEN BEEN SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE SCIENTIFIC METHODS FOR MEASURING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TREATMENT WERE ONLY RECENTLY DEVELOPED. IMPORTANT PROBLEMS FACING THE SYSTEM INCLUDE A DETERMINATION OF THE ROLE OF JUVENILE COURTS IN DEALING WITH STATUS OFFENDERS AND OF THE PLACE OF JUVENILE JUSTICE STANDARDS IN COURT ACTIVITIES. A RESEARCH DIRECTOR AT THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR JUVENILE JUSTICE DESCRIBES A STUDY WHICH REVEALED THAT JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST JUVENILES VARIED GREATLY IN A PITTSBURG AND IN A BUFFALO COURT, AND A DIRECTOR OF THE CENTER SUGGESTS THAT SIMILAR STUDIES WHICH INCLUDE ANALYSES OF COURTS' EFFECTIVENESS COULD PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR COURTS PLANNING TO IMPLEMENT NEW PROCEDURES. THE AUDIOTAPE CASSETTE IS SUITABLE FOR A GENERAL AUDIENCE. A TABLE OF CONTENTS IS INCLUDED, BUT OTHER SUPPORTING MATERIALS ARE NOT PRESENT.
Index Term(s): Audiovisual aids; Juvenile court procedures; Juvenile courts; Juvenile justice system; Workshops and seminars
