Children's Hearings in Scotland: 3rd Edition

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Third edition, taking account of the changes in the law and practice contained in the Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 and associated rules and regulations. The book is a step-by-step procedural guide to the entire system, from the bringing of the child to an initial hearing, through procedure at the hearing itself, to potential outcomes and appeals. Our expert author Professor Norrie deals in detail with the mechanisms for challenging grounds of referral before the sheriff, and with appeals to the sheriff, the sheriff principal and the Court of Session. Full account is also taken of the influence of the ECHR on the interpretation of the rules.

The combination of extensive coverage and academic insight alongside practical guidance on recognised situations ensures that this is the complete resource for legal practitioners, local authorities, children’s reporters and panel members.
