Join us at our Conference, ‘Defending Children’s Human Rights in Scotland: Where are we now?’ which celebrates  the 10th anniversary of our unique outreach law centre for children and young people.

2018 is the Year of Young People and the 20th anniversary of the Human Rights Act 1998, so we have chosen children and young people’s human rights as the focus of our Conference. Join us as we  reflect on the human rights issues we have encountered in our work as lawyers for children and young people over the last 10 years,  and look ahead to future challenges in making the law work better for children and young people in Scotland.

Speakers will include 

Alison Reid, Chief Executive and Principal Solicitor, Clan Childlaw, 

Fiona Jones, Policy and Advocacy Consultant, Clan Childlaw,

Bruce Adamson, Scotland's Commissioner for Children and Young People,

Juliet Harris, Director at Together Scotland,

Dr Aoife Daly, Senior Lecturer, Liverpool University School of Law and
