The 5th edition of the YJLC Summit, held at King's College on October 5th, 2023, was a pivotal event aimed at exploring alternative approaches to the criminal legal system for children. Recognizing the urgent need for professionals to advocate for the rights and well-being of children within the criminal justice system, the summit brought together experts and activists to equip attendees with the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve better outcomes for young people.
The Youth Justice Legal Centre Summit 2021: Bias. Discrimination. Fear. delved into five areas where children in the criminal justice system experience discrimination: Girls, Race, Class, Kids (age), and Fear. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to offer free tickets to all and were delighted to have reached 1,890 views by the end of the day!
