The juvenile court is approaching its one hundredth anniversary. Criticism and calls for reform, however, mark the court's history. In this article, the authors contend that, regardless of the attacks on the system, the juvenile court will survive. The authors discuss the historical development of the system and the many attempts to reform the juvenile court. They conclude that the juvenile court's diversity and flexibility, some aspects of which are commendable and some of which are not, will allow it to remain a permanent part of the justice system.
