Are you a barrister undertaking advocacy within the youth courts?

Then we would love to hear from you!

We recently announced our approach to addressing concerns identified in independent research about the standards of advocacy in proceedings involving youths. Our next step is to define the competencies expected of advocates in cases involving youths. We will be holding workshops in July and August to gather views from the profession and others within the youth justice sector on what those competencies are.

If you are an advocate involved in youth court proceedings or work with young persons within the youth justice system, and would like to be involved in the workshops, please get in touch via contactus@barstandardsboard.org.uk.
