In 1899, after an eight-year struggle in the state's General Assembly, the first juvenile court law went into effect in Illinois. Today, over half a century later, there are over three thousand juvenile courts, located in every state of the Union. In this article Judge Winnet takes stock of the juvenile courts today. He finds that the original objective was sound, and that much has been accomplished. He also finds weaknesses and makes valuable suggestions for eliminating them.
