The purpose of this Cases and Materials in Juvenile Law casebook is to provide teachers of juvenile law and process with a comprehensive set of course materials to examine both the delinquency and child welfare systems. Arranged in sixteen chapters, this book is roughly divided equally between delinquency and child welfare. There are separate chapters on children's rights in public schools, special advocacy for children, and mental health commitment of children.

As noted by Professor Sanford N. Katz in the Foreword to the book: "This book is the first successful attempt to combine Juvenile Law and the legal and social problems associated with juvenile delinquency and the juvenile court with Child Welfare Law and the issues of child protection. By uniting both areas in a single volume, Professor Smithburn has provided law students, legislators, and judges with a holistic approach to the study of children in the judicial system."
