A Comparative Analysis of Juvenile Codes is such an effort, having added significantly to the juvenile justice literature while fulfilling the academic requirements of graduate work. findings of this research provide an update to the 1974 work of Levin and Saari at the National Assessment of Juvenile Corrections. The effort was necessitated by the almost universal reconsideration of state juvenile legislation since the enactment of the JJDP Act in 1974. While our research has endeavored to update the original format and thereby provide continuity for legal scholars and practitioners alike, we have added a new section which details the changes which have been made with respect to the deinstitutionalization requirements of Section 223 (a) (12) (13) of the Act.
A word of caution to the reader involves the limitation of this analysis to the statutory language of each juvenile code. The study does not include the myriad of court rules, attorney general opinions, and executive orders which have significant bearing on the application of
legislative language. For this reason, as well as the day-to-day volatility of legislative change in this area, the reader is advised to supplement this information with an annotated examination of actual practice in any given state or territory.
