The juvenile justice system has been criticized for its inability to curb the trend of juvenile crime and its continued ignorance to the valuable resources of community-based rehabilitation and treatment programs. The goal of this research paper is to discover new solutions to the structural shortcomings of the juvenile justice system and present my findings on the reasons for its contradictive structure and practices.


Submitted to Scripps College in partial fulfillment of the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Major coursework for this thesis completed at Pitzer College.
