Abstract

This article describes the changing role of the juvenile court from the perspective of an urban juvenile court judge. The author's experiences as the administrative judge for Baltimore City's juvenile court address typical current juvenile court dilemmas such as lack of funding, physical space that is inadequate for the needs of the court and those it serves, and limited dispositional options for juvenile offenders. Examples of effective judicial advocacy are presented, as are suggestions for positive court reform.
