Young Offenders Law

Overview

This book, by one of Canada’s leading scholars of youth justice, gives lawyers, judges, and other professionals an introduction to an important, controversial area of Canadian law. Our response to young persons who violate criminal law is profoundly significant not simply for those who are directly involved in the process, but also for society as a whole. The focus of the book is on the Young Offenders Act and the youth justice system. However, it also provides a discussion of the broader political and social issues that affect families and youth, and it explores some of the ethical and practical issues that confront lawyers and other professionals working in the youth justice system.
