The Juvenile Court Concept in Missouri: Its Historical Development—The Need for New Legislation

Abstract

The present method of treatment of neglected and delinquent children by the juvenile court in Missouri is a dual heritage from their treatment under the criminal law and in the courts of equity as it has evolved during the last century and a third. This mixed ancestry may underlie some of the problems that have arisen to impede the proper development of the juvenile court.
