Ellen Marrus & Irene Merker Rosenberg. Children and juvenile justice. 2nd ed. Carolina Academic Press, 2012.

KF9794.M37 2011

 

Originally co-authored by Professors Irene Rosenberg and Ellen Marrus but completed by Professor Marrus alone after the passing of Professor Rosenberg, the second edition of this casebook adds to the original topics the competency issues in juvenile court.  The materials include cases, including more recent United States Supreme Court and state cases, statutes, forms, ABA Standards, law review and related articles, new recommendations on the role of juvenile defense counsel, new social science research, and notes and questions.  The authors also tried to explore ethical problems in juvenile practice openly.  This effort alone makes this casebook an outstanding teaching tool.
