Procedural fairness in youth detention placement decisions

15.10.13 |

The High Court today handed down judgment in R (ML) v Youth Justice Board [2013] EWHC 3083 (Admin) . The court ruled that children in detention have to be afforded a sensible opportunity to make representations in relation to any proposed moves between different kinds of accommodation. To do so effectively, they should benefit from assistance by their parents or social worker.


Nikolaus Grubeck and Phillippa Kaufmann QC acted for ML, instructed by GT Stewart Solicitors.
