Coronagraphic imaging and direct spectroscopy of young planets with JWST will add new insights into our understanding of the formation and evolution of exoplanets. This paper focuses on how JWST will add to our knowledge of young giant planets located at orbits beyond a few AU for the closest stars and a few 10s of AU for more distant ones.
