Juvenile Detainees’ Perceptions and Attitudes toward the Legal System

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Legal socialization reflects attitudes and perceptions of an individual toward the legal system. For offenders, legal socialization may likely impact their orientation and compliance with the law. Positive legal attitudes may encourage better response to mandated treatment. Negative legal perceptions, on the other hand, may hinder adherence to rules and regulations of community or correctional supervision. This study aims to examine the legal socialization of juvenile detainees and assess whether (a) legal attitudes predict current perceptions of correctional institution’s social climate, (b) legal attitudes and social climate perceptions predict institutional infraction, and (c) personality attributes such as aggression and alienation mediate these relationships.
