Representing care experienced children & young people in police custody: A good practice guide

The Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ), in collaboration with the Scottish Child Law Centre, has published ‘Representing care experienced children & young people in police custody: A good practice guide’. This new source will support Scottish solicitors and practitioners with Good Practice Principles when representing care experienced children in police custody, to ensure their rights are upheld.

To mark this launch, we invite you to join us for an exclusive event, where you’ll hear from those who contributed to the guide about why it was created and how it’s helping to keep Scotland’s Promise to care experienced children and young people. There will also be opportunities for questions and discussion.

Confirmed speakers are Gillian Mawdsley (Law Society of Scotland); Claire Sands (Howard League for Penal Reform); Beth-Anne Logan (STARR); Irina Beaton (Scottish Child Law Centre); and Fiona Dyer (CYCJ).

Although primarily for criminal solicitors, this is open to anyone with an interest in this area.

Register here. We would be grateful if you could share this with your contacts and networks.
