This course considers the doctrines, purposes and processes of the delinquency jurisdiction of juvenile courts. What are the differences and the similarities between juvenile and criminal courts, sanctions, and institutions of detention and correction? To what extent do differences in purpose justify different procedural requirements? How is the juvenile system different from the modern criminal system in the distribution of power among judges, prosecutors and probation staff? What trends are evident over the post-Gault decades? What happens next?

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend in order not to be dropped.
