University of Baltimore Law Review


Children in our society are too often the victims of abusive and neglectful parents and guardians. Although Maryland was among the first jurisdictions to enact protective legislation for abused and neglected children, the Maryland legislature must continue to respond to the plight of these victims. The author traces the development of the Maryland child abuse and neglect laws, analyzes the effectiveness of these laws today, and discusses those changes necessary to afford Maryland children the fullest protection possible.
