Child Law covers criminal, family and civil aspects of the law affecting children – and ranges from offending to care proceedings to parental conflict to human rights (and international treaties) to education, work and employment – making it of considerable interest to a wide range of people who wish to understand the ‘bigger picture’ against which child protection, youth justice and other child-related public and community responsibilities has evolved. An invaluable collection of information which seeks to enhance all-round knowledge of children who come to the notice of the authorities – whose lives may involve multiple conflicts. Ideal for courts, lawyers, child protection workers and youth justice workers and other people – including members of YOTs, youth offending panels, CAFCASS, colleges and teachers. A listed text for Criminal Justice National Training Organization
