It is a very real honour for me to have been invited to give this lecture. As you know, it is part of the series that was set up to commemorate the establishment of the Children's Hearing system in Scotland. I accepted the invitation with some diffidence, as I am not nearly so closely involved with the system as most of you are, even before my retirement from the UK Supreme Court. To be frank, I am not really in a position to speak with any authority on how the current system is working today or what steps, if any, are needed to improve it.
