Description

Criminal Law - Youth Justice addresses the law, theory and practice behind the New Zealand youth justice system. It discusses the principles, legislation and policies governing the operation of the youth justice system, as well as exploring practice and procedure in the distinctive Youth Court jurisdiction.

It critiques the recent major reforms to the system, including the new powers to prosecute children and the new and expanded Youth Court orders, breaking down the changes and providing current guidance.

Criminal Law - Youth Justice is drawn from Youth Justice in New Zealand by Nessa Lynch.
