Children have a unique status when participating in the criminal justice system. In order to clarify the issues and challenges that arise in these specific circumstances, Prosecuting and Defending Offences Against Children: A Practitioner’s Handbook breaks down the numerous factors and considerations that legal professionals should be aware of when working on cases where children have been victims of crime.

The author team—composed of Crown, defence, and judiciary—thoroughly examines multiple facets of child abuse, including neglect, sexual abuse, internet exploitation, physical abuse, and homicide. Additionally, the text takes great care to consider how children interact with the criminal justice system differently than adults through its exploration of child witness preparation, the special features of children’s evidence, testimonial aids, and sentencing.

This practical and procedural guidance is invaluable to anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding of how criminal law applies to cases involving the abuse of children.
