Description

The authors have updated the popular casebook with new cases and materials that capture rapid changes in child advocacy and juvenile justice. The book continues its interdisciplinary emphasis, practical approach, and in-depth coverage of lawyering, child abuse and neglect, foster care, adoption, status offenses, and delinquency. Chapters on children’s rights and obligations, regulatory legislation, financial relationships, and medical decision-making permit flexible coverage. Notes following cases and article excerpts orient students and provide background for classroom discussion.
