Advanced Diploma in Juvenile Justice

This course is not running in 2017–2018.

The Council of Europe and the United Nations have emphasised the importance of specialist training and knowledge of all individuals working with children involved in the criminal justice system. This specialist training is required in light of the myriad of vulnerabilities of children involved in criminal justice proceedings and the separate laws and procedures governing the treatment of these children. The Advanced Diploma in Juvenile Justice at King’s Inns is the first of its kind to be delivered by a professional law school in Ireland. This part–time programme focuses on the substantive law and salient legal issues concerning children involved in the criminal justice system. Predominately concerned with juvenile offending, the programme also addresses the role of the child as a witness in criminal justice proceedings. The Programme has a strong practical focus with a number of guest lectures from individuals working with children in different areas of the criminal justice system in Ireland.

This is a blending learning programme, with most lectures recorded to facilitate participation from students who might find attendance in person difficult due to work, location or personal reasons.   

The course will be rested during the academic year 2017–2018.
