A Practical Guide to Rules and Procedures in Processing Juvenile Court Cases — With Forms

This new soft-cover book is meant to serve as a basic introduction to Pennsylvania Juvenile Delinquency & Dependency Law, and it is a "must-have" for the attorney who practices in this area of the law. This book will provide a practical, Pennsylvania-oriented guide for the use of anyone involved with the problems encountered in handling youth who are in trouble with the law. It serves as a step-by-step guide through the juvenile court system from start to finish. Among its highlights are the inclusion of the Pennsylvania Juvenile Act and the newly adopted Pennsylvania Rules of Juvenile Court Procedure, which provide an all-inclusive reference guide to juvenile law practitioners. The book sets forth a broad overview of the juvenile court system and identifies and sets forth the roles of the key players of the system. It contains the top ten rules-of-thumb for a juvenile defense attorney, as well as providing numerous forms, petitions, court orders and charts to help a juvenile attorney navigate with ease through the system. The emphasis of the book is on juvenile delinquency, and the goal is to make available a basic "how to" outline of the rules and procedures involved in processing juvenile court cases.
