Lawyers should be assigned to children when faced with court, by right

Children should have a lawyer appointed by right if it goes to court. There are often reasons that this does not happen, such as oversight by the parents, the child not wanting a lawyer, or the child reporter not appointting one.


Why the contribution is important

This is important as without a lawyer the child is not represented and their needs can be overlooked.
