  • Compare and contrast the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems
  • Analyze and describe how they are similar and how they are fundamentally different.
  • Explain why the juvenile justice system is different, and the principles behind those differences.

Note that this is not a research paper, but rather a reflective paper that analytically summarizes the course material presented in the textbook and within the online Course Content.
