I’m working on a criminal justice report and need support to help me learn.
This report will be due during Week 5, but I recommend you get started thinking about what you want to write now. You will submit a two-part analysis paper via Canvas file upload.
In this portion of your paper, describe the following roles as they pertain to the juvenile justice system. Each should be their own section and should fully and accurately describe the role of each:
- Juvenile Court
- The Prosecutor
- The Defense Attorney
- Juvenile Probation/Parole Officer
After you have fully defined the roles of each of the above, write 2-3 paragraphs of what you think is the most effective role and the has the ability to have the most significant impact on the youth offender. Support your claim with definitional and historical evidence and provide your reasoning. Try to think about what someone arguing against your claim might say and work your own counter-arguments into your paper.
- 3-5 pages, not including the title or reference pages
- APA formatting (for help, see this page)
- Double spaced, 12 point font, Times New Roman, 1 inch margins
- 2 references from reputable sources, one of which can be your textbook
