Introduction to Youth Justice: Incorporating An Introduction to the Youth Court
A basic outline of the arrangements for youth justice in England and Wales, including the law, practice and sentencing powers of the youth court, produced under the auspices of the Justices' Clerks' Society.
The handbook avoids jargon and complexity to provide an accessible reference point for magistrates, youth justice practitioners and others with responsibilities under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 concerning the new arrangements for youth justice.
