Youth Justice in New Zealand critiques law, theory and practice in the New Zealand youth justice system. Reflecting on the unique challenges of children and youth, it analyses the principles, legislation and policies governing the operation of the youth justice system including practice and procedure in the distinctive Youth Court jurisdiction.

This third edition discusses developments since the second edition was published in 2016.   It brings the text up-to-date with the youth justice age being raised to 18 for most offences; the new operating model and Ministry for Children/Oranga Tamariki, and the updated theoretical framework of the legislation. Case law and wider analysis have been updated throughout each chapter. An entirely new chapter considers the place of children and young persons in the adult criminal justice system. 

Youth Justice in New Zealand (3rd edition) is the essential black letter law research and reference point for youth advocates, practitioners, academics, and members of the judiciary.
