Legal Representation at Children’s Hearings: The Interim Scheme

(p.69) Commentary No 13: March 2002
Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

A breach of the European Convention on Human Rights had been found for the failure to allow paid legal representation at some children's hearings. The Scottish Government responded by creating an “interim scheme” for the provision of legal representatives in some categories of children's hearings. That interim scheme lasted from 2002 until 2013, when the Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 came into force.

Keywords:   European Convention on Human Rights, Legal representation, Children's hearings, Children's Hearings (Legal Representation) (Scotland) Regulations 2001, Secure accommodation, Effective participation, Appeals from children's hearings
