This thesis examines the establishment of the Children’s Court of Victoria (1906) in the context of a perceived ‘youth crisis’ in early twentieth-century Melbourne. It focuses on the limits of law in responding to structural disadvantage and highlights how law can serve as a distraction, rather than a solution, to longstanding social problems.
