Young people and children

Copeland, A. and Goodie, J. (2005) Young people and children. In: Ketley, H., (ed.) The WA law handbook. Sussex Street Community Law Services, East Victoria Park, W.A., pp. 146-163.


Why do we need to distinguish between young people and children? Does the law make such a distinction and does it stick to it? The focus of this chapter is on the circumstances and conditions that serve to distinguish the young person as a particular focus of legal attention and the ways in which the legal system governs young people.
