Children's rights is a concept which has finally become an accepted part of the legal landscape. How Scottish law approaches issues involving children is of increasing importance for lawyers and those working with children.

This book addresses the law and practice in Scotland and its significance for children, parents and their legal, and other, advisers. The title analyses child law in the light of international conventions and, in particular, The European Convention on Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
