    Abstract

    Within juvenile courts, ever younger violent offenders are being transferred to adult criminal courts. This article reviews legislation surrounding transfer of jurisdiction and the evaluation of juvenile amenability by a forensic examiner. Specific areas of focus for the evaluation of juvenile offenders are offered in consideration of the pivotal opportunity this area of juvenile justice poses the minor, the courts, and society at large.
