Book description


The first edition of this book rapidly sold out, as did the first print-run of this second edition. Includes the considerable impact of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, including the creation of local Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) and the fresh responsibilities of the police, local authorities and other people responsible for crime prevention and community safety - plus a comprehensive account of the youth court, its jurisdiction, procedures, practice and sentencing powers.

This introduction is now also recommended in the official YOTs Training Packs issued under the auspices of the Youth Justice Board and represents excellent value for anyone wishing to learn about the new arrangements for youth justice in England and Wales.


'An invaluable resource': Childright

'A lucid and succinct overview . . . refreshingly free from jargon': Howard League Magazine

'A useful reference manual for all of us': Prison Service Journal

'A very practical tool': Young People Now

'An extremely useful and practical guide': The Law (Review of the first edition)


The three authors are all serving justices' clerks responsible for the administration of youth courts in their own areas of the country and with extensive experience of training in this subject. Jonathan Black is a member of the Youth Justice Board.
