It is the writer's intention to compare Ohio's new juvenile code with that offered by the Crime Commission, with the Standards for Juvenile and Family Courts, and with the Uniform Juvenile Court Act, which was drafted to meet the constitutional requirements of Kent and Gault. These two cases now force one to reconsider in the juvenile court context the applicability of more formal procedural rules, as well as the applicability of all the Constitutional Rights contained in the Bill of Rights which have been incorporated (as far as criminal proceedings are concerned) into the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. It would also seem desirable to measure Ohio's new code against the deficiencies listed by the President's Commission in The Challenge and ascertain whether it satisfies the recommendations therein made.
