Children and juvenile justice, 2d ed.

Marrus, Ellen and Irene Merker Rosenberg.

Carolina Academic Press


626 pages




Combining theory, practice, and ethics, this casebook represents the joint efforts of two authors affiliated with the U. of Houston Law Center: Ellen Marrus and Irene Merker Rosenberg, who died during preparation of this second edition. They made the decision to edit Supreme Court Cases lightly, so students are exposed to the full opinions, and to use the Institute of Judicial Administration--American Bar Association's Standards as the best source for best practices. Coverage begins with a historical overview of the juvenile court system in the US. Subsequent chapters discuss the Supreme Courts' constitutional domestication of the juvenile court, theory and practice of right to counsel, delinquency proceedings (state statutes and cases, constitutional restraints on practices in juvenile correctional facilities, status of offenders, and waiver and blinded, determinate, and extended jurisdiction sentencing.
