This paper examines liberty and due process issues in juvenile aftercare that are treated in a relatively cavalier fashion by social work and legal advocates. Special attention is given to reviewing current judicial policy and the results of a national survey on juvenile aftercare practices and procedures. This review of judicial and state policies is used to formulate future directions for policy reforms by social workers involved in the administration of juvenile aftercare/parole.
