Justice for all: Let’s talk about juvenile justice

The Diploma Centre, with the guidance of Judge John O’Connor, has designed a new Certificate in Juvenile Justice, Litigation and Advocacy which will commence on 5 October 2019.

Participants will have an opportunity to apply key advocacy skills and competencies that are required when representing young persons who have become involved with the juvenile justice system. This will include practising the speech and language skills required to effectively take instructions from young persons.

Lectures will focus on the steps to be employed in proceedings under the Children Act 2001, as amended, so as to ensure that such proceedings fully comply with a young defendant’s Constitutional rights, as well as international standards for juvenile justice. In workshops, participants will then apply Practice Direction DC04 – Children Court to given scenarios, designed as it is to ensure due regard for the protection of the rights of the child and to safeguard the young person from avoidable intimidation, humiliation, or distress.

In order to deepen the learning experience, students will have an opportunity to observe and participate in various role-play scenarios involving Children Court proceedings and to practice and hone communication and advocacy skills that are particularly pertinent when representing young persons.
