Children & Youth Rights: A Primer [WEBCAST ONLY] 

Oct. 20, 2021
ON

OBA Child & Youth Law & Education Law PROGRAM | 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

This program is also part of a five-part series - Ethical and Practical Considerations When Working With and For Young People

As signatories to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Canada’s commitment to protecting children’s rights has developed over time to place significant importance on children’s participation and views.  How has this created synergies or tensions with other legal principles and how have courts and decision-makers handled this tension?

Our distinguished panel will discuss the specific legal provisions that reflect children and youth’s rights in legal proceedings, and its interplay with other legal provisions that limit these rights.
