The Law Society has announced the development of a Youth Court Advocacy training course in partnership with the Youth Justice Legal Centre.
The Youth Justice Legal Centre has partnered with the Law Society to develop a structured training course tailored for their members who practise in the criminal courts and specifically those practising in youth court.
The course provides an overview of youth-specific criminal law from the police station to the youth court. The training will cover key topics such as out of court disposals, bail and remand, jurisdiction, adaptations to the trial process and youth sentencing. The course will introduce participants to the underlying principles of youth justice and international children’s rights law. This knowledge will be embedded through interactive exercises and case studies.
