Description

This timely book, by one of Canada's leading scholars of youth justice, is a succinct and authoritative introduction to an important, controversial area of Canadian law. Our response to young persons who violate criminal law is profoundly significant not simply for those who are directly involved in the process, but also for society as a whole.

About the Authors
Nicholas Bala has been a Professor at the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University since 1980. Most of his teaching and research has been in the area of family and children’s law, with research focusing on issues related to young offenders, child witnesses and child abuse, spousal abuse, and parental rights and responsibilities after divorce. Much of his research work is interdisciplinary and he has undertaken collaborative projects with criminologists, psychologists, social workers, and health professionals. Professor Bala has published extensively and this is the eighteenth book that he has written or co-authored. His work has been cited by all levels of court in Canada, including most of the recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions dealing with youth justice issues. He frequently presents at professional education programs for judges, lawyers, probation officers, youth workers, teachers, doctors, psychologists, child welfare workers, and social workers.
