Children's hearings seminar
29 May 19
This seminar will provide a primer to the issues that solicitors need to know in order to ensure their participation at children’s hearings is as meaningful as possible as a result of the Act
As a result of the implementation of the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011, an increasing number of solicitors have been present at children’s hearings. While this has had its advantages, there have been difficulties for solicitors in becoming attuned to the unique environment of the children’s hearings system.
This seminar will provide a primer to the issues that solicitors need to know in order to ensure their participation is as meaningful as possible, giving a thorough introduction to matters of child development and how the process will impact them, as well as advice on facilitating child participation and managing the difficulties that might arise when representing another party in a children’s hearing.
