Summary and Policy Recommendations
Our research results provide sound, empirical evidence of the need for special methods to safeguard juveniles’ interrogation rights to silence and legal counsel. In this final chapter, we will examine several potential safeguards, using the research results and the reality of law and the legal process to evaluate these proposals. In addition, we will show how the results can be used as guidelines for legislative reform and judicial decision making regarding juveniles’ waiver of rights. First, however, let us review the major conclusions from the studies in the foregoing chapters.
