Adolescent Consultation Services

Kids and the Law

ACS's publication, Kids and the Law, serves as a valuable resource for adolescents, families, and other professionals. This straightforward guide to the procedures of the Massachusetts Juvenile Court will be updated and republished in an English/Spanish edition.

Please note: There have been extensive changes to the laws regarding the Massachusetts Juvenile Court. An updated edition of Kids and the Law is being prepared. In the meantime, ACS has published a copy of the chapter dealing with Child Requiring Assistance applications as well as the Resources section. We have also just published the School Discipline and Exclusions chapter. You can access these in "Flipbook" format for online viewing or download PDFs. Both formats are fully searchable.
