Minnesota Law Review
The purpose of this article by Feld was to examine the work of Minnesota's Juvenile Justice Task Force of 1994 in light of policy, case law, and prior task force recommendations. The author, a member and co-chair of the Task Force, analyzed revisions in the Minnesota juvenile justice adjudicatory system as it converged juvenile and criminal court adjudication procedures and philosophy. Ultimately, the recommendations of the Task Force were presented and accepted by the Minnesota legislature, and subsequently included Minnesota's 1994 Juvenile Crime Bill.
