YJLC Legal Guide on Children facing Sexual Allegations

The Youth Justice Legal Centre and the Children’s Rights Group at Doughty Street Chambers have published a legal guide on Children facing Sexual Allegations.

The guide provides an overview of the law on allegations of sexual offences made against children. It also provides an overview of the key offences, takes you through the main stages in a case, from the initial allegation to sentence and criminal records, and provides practical advice on the work that needs to be done by the defence at each point.

You can also watch a recording of the legal guide launch.
