- a concise, manageable length at fewer than 900 pages

- logical organization and clear structure, catering to a wide variety of teaching styles

- a comprehensive Teacher's Manual, available in print and online

The Second Edition has been carefully updated with great new material on:

- juvenile delinquency, including Roper v. Simmons on the death penalty, the MacArthur Juvenile Adjudicative Competence Study, and their implications for juvenile delinquency law and practice

- additional Supreme Court cases focusing on school searches (Board of Education v. Earls) and the new cases on the interrogation of minors (Yarborough v. Alvarado)

- child welfare, including:

i. additional coverage of domestic violence, including Nicholson v. Williams and its aftermath

iii. cases considering the constitutionality of the AFSAtermination of parental rights grounds; and commentary and materials on the impact of the AFSA changes

Book News Annotation:

This book is intended to be used in coursework in children, parents, and the state or for a class in juvenile courts. It also is intended to introduce students to the importance, legal and human complexity, and the sophistication of the law as it relates to children, parents, the state, and to the theory and practice of American juvenile courts. In this volume, Harris and Teitelbaum extensively discuss juvenile court jurisdiction and procedure in delinquency, status offense, and child protection. The casebook also provides a detailed consideration of the constitutional and other principles on public and private authority for decisions affecting the education and care of young people.
