(p.237) Conclusion
Adolescence, Discrimination, and the Law

Roger J. R. Levesque

NYU Press

This concluding chapter revisits the book's central arguments and highlights their implications. It argues equality jurisprudence has become too narrow and that it increasingly fails to consider the root causes of discrimination. Even the bulk of research on discrimination has become largely irrelevant to current equality jurisprudence. Addressing behaviors like discrimination requires not less but more legal involvement. Scholars and researchers must realize that the legal system is not neutral in the values it supports, especially when it deals with issues of inequality. A more effective equality jurisprudence calls for the development of a legal system and policies that more aggressively support equality by shaping the institutions that influence the development of our values.

Keywords:   legal system, discrimination, equality, values, equality jurisprudence
