"Youth Court Guide has remained a constant as the specialist reference book for busy practitioners working in or around the court system." Sam Goozee, Solicitor Justices' Clerk for North & West Yorkshire and Vice-President of Justices' Clerks Society, 2012

Containing a depth of knowledge of the youth court system, as well as the fundamental principles and day-today practices that pertain to it, Youth Court Guide provides direction on every stage of youth justice. Chapters follow the sequence of criminal proceedings from the use of diversions, cautions and arrests through to trial, sentences and appeals, while the detailed contents and index ensure the guide remains easy to access.

The fifth edition of the book contains central sections on venue, remand and sentencing for daily reference and focuses on practical solutions rather than academic debate. It also includes a chapter looking at difficult areas and legal issues and contains simple flow diagrams to help you understand and follow the new remand powers and venue provisions. A quick guide to sentencing orders is also included.
