Heather Hojnacki, Graham v. Florida: How the Supreme Court’s Rationale Encourages Reform of the Juvenile Justice System Through Alternative Dispute Resolution Strategies, 12 Pepp. Disp. Resol. L.J. 135 (2012).
Peer jury model offers juvenile criminal system many advantages, including direct interaction with the jury and  the juvenile’s desire for peer approval, a motivator more powerful than adult authority. Like mediation programs, teen courts have gained popularity due to the high rate of satisfaction for participants. Issues with statistical comparison make analyzing recidivism rates difficult; however, in most courts studied, organizers reported a lower recidivism rate than found in traditional juvenile courts.
