Welcome back to Closing Arguments!
We're back for an all-new season of the show and we're kicking things off with a deep dive into the juvenile law system in Indiana. Join us as we explore the challenges, triumphs, and ongoing debates surrounding the juvenile justice system, with a particular focus on the Hoosier State.
To kick off the episode, we lay the foundation by examining the historical development of Juvenile Law in Indiana. We explore the origins of the system and the intentions behind its establishment. As we uncover the key milestones and influential court cases that shaped Indiana's approach, we also assess the evolution of juvenile justice practices over time.
