Call Number: Main Level - Study Aids REF KF9780 .F45 2018
Publication Date: 2018-10-03
This Nutshell title focuses exclusively on the criminal and non-criminal misconduct of children that bring them within the jurisdiction of juvenile courts and examines law enforcement, judicial, and administrative responses to that misconduct. It deals with issues of children's rights only insofar as they relate to the processes of investigating and prosecuting juvenile offenders for delinquency and status-offenses. Like all Nutshells, it strives to provide a succinct exposition of the law for students studying juvenile justice, for lawyers who do not regularly practice in juvenile court, and for legislators and policy officials involved in juvenile justice law reform efforts. Also available through West Academic (use link below)
Includes Nutshells, Gilbert's Summaries, Black Letter Outlines, Concise Hornbooks, and other study aid publications related to courses taught in the Law School.
About this Guide
This guide was created to assist Juvenile Justice students with researching law, policy, and other sources of information related to juvenile justice. The goal of this research guide is to provide an overview of the interdisciplinary research resources that are available at Vanderbilt on this subject.
The content of this guide is both narrow and general. The content is narrow in that it provides information for a very specific specialty area of American law. The coverage of the content is broad and general concerning the primary and secondary sources available to you about juvenile justice and interdisciplinary resources related to juvenile justice. Visit each tab to explore the many research options available to you at Vanderbilt.
This guide was originally created by Andrea Alexander and was subsequently updated by Sarah Dunaway.
