Youth Crime Subset training

Youth Crime Subset training

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

On Friday 28 July we will host a full-day training program for practitioners applying to be part of the Youth Crime Subset of the Section 29A Indictable and Summary Crime PanelsTo register for the training, please email panels@vla.vic.gov.au by the 14 July 2017.

This training will be conducted by lawyers from Victoria Legal Aid’s Youth Crime sub-program who work almost exclusively in the Children's Court jurisdiction with young clients in both the Criminal Division and the Family Division of the Court. They also represent young clients with matters committed for trial in higher courts (homicides, exceptional circumstances and fitness to plead cases).

Attendance at this training is compulsory for practitioners who intend to apply to the Youth Crime Subset and are not accredited specialists in Children’s Law.

The training has been designed to meet CPD requirements and places are limited.
