Description

Representing Youth is an innovative text for those seeking to understand the complexities and context of legal systems impacting youth. This text begins with a chapter outlining systems basics but quickly transitions into a fictionalized narrative seen through the eyes of the young people, families, communities, and professionals at the center of the child welfare and offender systems. Readers have access to relevant law and social sciences through extensive footnotes. Lawyering skills and ethics are raised in breakout boxes, and exercises at the end of each chapter challenge readers to think critically and imagine change.
