Significant Cases in Juvenile Justice

Second Edition

Craig Hemmens, Benjamin Steiner, and David Mueller

Criminal Justice Case Briefs

Easily accessible to undergraduates, Significant Cases in Juvenile Justice, Second Edition, offers a clear, comprehensive introduction to juvenile justice. Rather than providing complete opinions, which may overwhelm students, the authors present case briefs, along with analyses, explanations, and short excerpts. In addition to the case summaries, the book includes lists of all of the cases it covers, both in alphabetical order and grouped by topic; a short introduction to each topic; and an index.

New to this Edition:

  • Additional cases throughout including Safford Unified School District #1 v. Redding (2009), Graham v. Florida (2010), and J.D.B. v. North Carolina (2011)
  • New discussion questions and a new glossary of key terms
  • New key excerpts from the opinions along with analyses and explanations
