This chapter focuses on juveniles’ competence to stand trial. The principle illustrated by the first case addresses the importance of considering both relevance and scientific reliability and validity in considering how to seek information and select data sources in forensic assessment. Following the case report, the teaching point discusses the selection of specialized tools that might be used in evaluating juvenile trial competence. The second case concerns the importance of evaluation conditions that are quiet, private, and distraction-free.
