Remembering Lord Kilbrandon

Lord Kilbrandon will be remembered at the 12th annual Kilbrandon Lecture, taking place at the University of Strathclyde on Thursday, November 27.

It is 50 years since Charles Shaw, Lord Kilbrandon,  produced his Committee’s report which led to the abolition of juvenile courts in Scotland and their replacement by lay panels – ‘children’s hearings’ as they have come to be known.  This was a radical change especially when considered in the context of 1960’s conservative Scotland.

In his 2014 Kilbrandon lecture Lord David Hope of Craighead, former Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice General, will reflect on a number of important cases which came his way that have influenced the shape and direction of Scotland’s Children’s Hearings system and consider their  impact on Kilbrandon’s vision.

To attend, please register here by November 21.
