Explain what specialized or alternative courts are and how they work. Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper related to trends in the management of courts. Explain how the following issues impact the way courts complete their function:
- Attention grabbing introduction
- Explain what specialized or alternative courts are and how they work.
- Pick one court program (Veteran’s Court, Drug Court, Domestic Violence Court, Mental Health Court, etc.) and explain the program (what it entails, length of program, classes, how it affects the offender’s sentence or conviction, etc.) the typical type of offender that may qualify for it, and the current success rate of the program in your area. Provide real world examples of the court in your area.
- Discuss the current changes in victim rights laws. What rights do victim’s have, how do specialized courts affect victims, if at all? Do victims always support an offender getting treatment (probation) rather than a lenghty sentence? How do specialized courts handle restitution for the victims?
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
