A court dedicated to hearing cases involving people of less than 17 years of age. As far as possible, juvenile courts are kept entirely separate from adult courts, and there proceedings are not open to the public. Magistrates' panels in the juvenile court must contain at least one man and one woman, and all must be below 65 years of age.
