This assignment will require you to synthesize your readings, spend some time looking for other resources, and to think outside the box. The general idea is you want to give an overview and analysis of a specific topic that interests you regarding juvenile justice.
Think of this assignment this way: if someone who wasn’t a criminology and criminal justice major asked you “so, what’s up with gangs and juvenile justice?”, this would be your hour and a half response.
