Juvenile Justice Podcasts

I just noticed that Franklin Zimring, a law professor at Berkeley and noted juvenile justice expert, taught a class this fall (at the undergraduate level, as far as I can tell) called “Juvenile Delinquency and Juvenile Justice.” According to the online syllabus the class

examines the premises, doctrine, and operational behavior of juvenile courts, particularly in relation to the commission of seriously anti-social acts by mid-adolescents. Topics include the history of theories of delinquency; the jurisprudence of delinquency; the incidence and severity of delinquency; police response to juvenile offenders; the processes of juvenile courts and youth corrections; and reforms or alternatives to the juvenile court system.

Many of the lectures from this course have been recorded and uploaded as podcasts; you can download them here.
