Date: 8th December 2020

Speaker: Ciaran White BL

This seminar examined how the role of the Northern Ireland Commissioner for Children and Young People (NICCY) can be beneficial to solicitors and counsel acting in Judicial Review actions regarding children’s services, including education, health services, accommodation, and other statutory entitlement and rights, and how the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is/can be invoked by applicants and NICCY in such cases.
