This unique book makes explicit what those involved with the children's hearings system really need to know to achieve their aims. It comprises two case histories - one of the alleged offence by the child type and the other a care and protection one, reflecting the dual nature of the Scottish system. Each case is traced from the outset through the hearings procedures, into the sheriff court (with legal argument and a partial transcript of the proof before the sheriff) and final disposal by hearing, with possible appeal to the sheriff against the decision of the hearing. At appropriate points commentary is inserted in order to explain what is happening and why. Written in a readable and entertaining style, the title also contains:- Completed forms for use in relation to hearings and court proceedings arising out of hearings, with guidance on good practice in relation to the various procedures Meticulously referenced footnotes - which keep the text itself easy to read, but ensure that the detail is not lost Appendices containing specimen documents which are not reproduced elsewhere, eg police reports and social enquiry reports
