Sentencing young people – where next?

Join CYCJ and the Scottish Sentencing Council for a follow-up to January’s highly successful webinar on Scotland’s guidelines for sentencing young people, which stimulated a great deal of discussion both during the event and afterwards.

This follow-up webinar on April 27, hosted by Krista Johnston, the Scottish Sentencing Council’s solicitor member, will feature the first public showing of a series of short animated videos currently being developed by the Council on the guideline’s key themes: maturity, rehabilitation, and the need for an individualised approach to the sentencing of young people.

There will then be a panel discussion with the three expert speakers who gave presentations in January (Dr Suzanne O’Rourke, Senior Lecturer in Forensic Clinical Psychology at the University of Edinburgh; retired sheriff David Mackie; and Kirsty Giles of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit), followed by a Q&A involving the panel and members of the Council’s Sentencing Young People Committee.

REGISTER HERE. This webinar will take place at 4.15pm-5.30pm.

Please note that joining instructions will be sent out to registered attendees 24 hours before the event. When tweeting about this event, please use the hashtag #CYCJwebinar.
