Time: 2:30p-4:00p  MW  Location:  

Course Outline: Juvenile Law- This course focuses on the development of the juvenile delinquency system and the juvenile courts through the examination of United States Supreme Court cases, state cases, and statutes. We will discuss the process of how juvenile cases are handled when a child is charged with an act that would be criminal if committed by an adult. This course is based on theory and practice.

Course Syllabus: Syllabus revised 8/31/2020

Course Notes: DistanceEd  The instructor for this course has expressed a preference to operate the course as distance education. This means no physical classroom is assigned for this course. This also most likely means synchronous internet videoconferencing class sessions during the day(s) and time(s) when the course is scheduled to meet. However, other, more flexible modalities are possible, such as not using some of the scheduled class sessions to meet but instead supplementing with asynchronous distance education techniques. More details should be made available from the instructor via their syllabus or via other means as the start of the semester nears.
