A Practical Guide to Juvenile Justice
John W. Biggers
Tucson:Black Spring Books:2003
Reviewed by Lon Woodbury

The author is an attorney and youth advocate who has been working in juvenile law for more than 30 years. He shares his knowledge with this very readable overview of the specifics of juvenile law.

The book divides the law as it relates to consequences of a child's actions, criminal law, and into the legal consequences of actions of adults around him/her (Divorce, abandonment, abuse and kids being drawn into the system), the author systematically explains in easy to understand language the concepts and specifics of what the law is trying to do for the good of the child.

This book would be helpful for any person that might have any contact with the law as it relates to juveniles, and that includes just about everybody. It would be helpful as a first reference on any specific situation as to the general gist of how the law might apply.
