This essential title has long been the most comprehensive examination of all the rules in primary and secondary legislation relating to children’s hearings. Now in its 3rd Edition it remains the go-to text for expert guidance on the rules for bringing a child to, and the legal procedure at, a children’s hearing. It also examines the powers of the hearing and the orders and warrants it can make over a child.

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.
