Dr Don Weatherburn, Director of the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (www.bocsar.nsw.gov.au) discusses the results of recent research into the impact and workings of the NSW Young Offenders Act 1997. This act allowed young offenders to be dealt with by way of youth justice conference or caution rather than through the traditional court system. Jenny Bargen, UNSW, provides a response. This is an audio file and powerpoint slides from the public seminar 'Future Directions for Juvenile Justice in NSW', 10 May 2012, Metcalfe Auditorium, State Library of NSW, Sydney. The seminar was convened by the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (www.bocsar.nsw.gov.au)
