The Children’s Rights Group at Doughty Street Chambers and the Youth Justice Legal Centre at Just for Kids Law invite you to join us in launching our legal guide on Police Bail and Remand for Children.

Our legal guide provides an overview of the law on the pre- and post-charge detention of children by the police and examines the corresponding duties of the Local Authority. The guide gives practical tips on what can be done by practitioners to reduce the time spent by children in police custody and, in particular, how to avoid their detention overnight at the police station.
