CJ 2100 - Juvenile Delinquency and Justice


(3)
This course provides an analysis of the legal system’s specific procedures for dealing with juvenile offenders. Theories on the causes of youth crime are a particularly important subfield within criminology. Specific attention is given to issues of diversity to both the understanding that crime is committed disproportionately by those aged between fifteen and twenty-five, and how the justice system addresses this reality.
