Kenneth McK Norrie

Edinburgh University Press

Discusses the “interim scheme” for legal representation of children at children's hearings, in place since 2002. Explores the implications of the Inner House decision in K v Authority Reporter 2009 SLT 1019 where the lack of legal aid for relevant persons was described as a “systemic flaw” in the children's hearing system. Discusses the amendments to the interim scheme to bring in legal aid for relevant persons, and presages the replacement of the interim scheme with a proper system amending the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986 by the Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011

Keywords:   Children's hearings, Legal representation, Effective participation, European Convention on Human Rights, Legal aid
