For courses in Juvenile Law or Juvenile Justice.  

Covering major U.S. Supreme Court cases on juvenile law, this book addresses society’s concerns about youth by focusing on how the law impacts them. Divided into two parts, the book first covers landmark cases that define the legal rights of youth within the juvenile justice process and then focuses on the legal rights of youth at school. Chapters are introduced with a brief discussion of the topic and case comments are provided before each U.S. Supreme Court case.  This important collection summarizes the key legal issues before the court and captures the cases that have had a profound impact on the lives of minors.
