Children's Hearings and the Sheriff Court

Children's Hearings and the Sheriff Court cover


Children's Hearings and the Sheriff Court is an established Scottish title focusing on a unique children's hearing system. It is the only available text which deals exclusively with procedure of the children's hearing system. The second edition reflects in particular the substantial changes brought about by the Children (Scotland Act) 1995 including the court's powers to make child assessment orders, child protection orders and exclusion orders. It takes into account the centralisation of the Children's Reporters Administration and draws on an ever growing volume of reported case law, both at Sheriff Court and Court of Session level.
