Manual Of Juvenile Laws | by Harry E. Smoot



This book is intended to aid all social workers, either in the field or in court. The text in most instances is a condensed statement of the law. The marginal references indicate where the law in full may be found. Persons who use this manual should consult the full text cited whenever there is any doubt as to the application or construction of the law in question. Many additions to and changes from the first manual have been made in this revision. An arrangement which seemed best adapted to the needs of all social workers, whether in Chicago or elsewhere in the state, has been used. It is believed that workers outside of Chicago will find the manual of great assistance to them.
