Children's hearings in Scotland

Norrie, Kenneth (1997) Children's hearings in Scotland. W. Green. ISBN 0414011759

Full text not available in this repository.

Abstract

The children's hearing system is unique to Scotland and is governed by statute and statutory instrument. The Children (Scotland) Act 1995 and regulations made under it radically reform the system, changing procedures to be followed by reporters, panel members and lawyers involved in appeals. This book provides a practical guide to the whole process from initial investigation through determination by the hearing to termination of any supervision requirement. Full account is taken of the new legislation and regulations, together with the substantial body of case law which has been built up since the inception of the original system in 1971.
