This chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explore whether the separate juvenile justice system should continue to exist and, if so, in what form. It proposes a reimagination of the legal basis for juvenile courts that facilitates their use as a way of ensuring that juvenile offenders end up on the right track rather than in prison. Four models of juvenile justice are discussed from a historical perspective. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   juvenile justice system, juvenile courts, juvenile offenders, prison
