What we do


To increase the capacity of defence lawyers to effectively represent children in criminal proceedings by:

  • Identifying practical barriers to the effective participation of child suspects and defendants in criminal proceedings, which skilled legal representation could address;
  • Examining existing practice and engaging interdisciplinary expertise on the training of defence lawyers working with child suspects and defendants;
  • Developing and delivering a replicable and interdisciplinary training programme for defence lawyers;
  • Enhancing networking opportunities for defence lawyers representing children, through project activities and the existing EU-wide LEAP network.
