Youth Justice in New Zealand critiques law, theory and practice in the New Zealand youth justice system. Reflecting on the unique challenges of children and youth, it analyses the principles, legislation and policies governing the operation of the youth justice system including practice and procedure in the distinctive Youth Court jurisdiction.

The third edition brings the text up-to-date with the youth justice age being raised to 18; the Child Youth and Family Service and legislation being replaced by Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry for Children; and the primary Act being renamed the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989.

Youth Justice in New Zealand (3rd edition) is the essential black letter law research and reference point for youth advocates, practitioners, academics, and members of the judiciary.
