CPD Hours Level
Learn Live 1.5 IntroductionInformation


This live broadcast session is an introduction to some issues that may challenge most prosecutors during their early days in the Youth Court.

With the Youth Court being given its power to commit for sentence back in 2015, more and more serious cases will be tried before the Youth Court rather than the Crown Court meaning a good knowledge of the law in this area has never been more important.

Prosecuting sexual offences always presents a challenge, but especially before the Youth Court. This session will assist you with some of the nuts and bolts of prosecuting to make your initial encounter less stressful than it might otherwise be.

What You Will Learn

This interactive course will cover the following:

  • The new offence of 'grooming' and what it actually is
  • Dealing with registration requirements and how they differ with youths
  • Abuse of process applications - how to respond effectively
  • A brief introduction to s. 41 and cross-examination of previous sexual history

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
