Trial manual for defense attorneys in juvenile delinquency cases
948 pages. No updates available.
This publication adheres strictly to its title. The text is geared to exclusively to defense attorneys. The authors do not try to examine juvenile law from the prosecution’s perspectives. It is a manual in the sense it eschews theory and provides practical guidance from taking on a juvenile case through the possible resolutions. The book’s chapters follow the usual sequence of events in a juvenile case. Rather than referring you elsewhere in the book, they repeat information as needed relating it to topic at hand. Practical advice is given on working with the clients, their parents and the court system so you can provide the best advocacy possible to ensure the best outcome for the child.
