What are Youth Justice Conferences? – a legal literacy activity

With the support of the Canadian Bar Association Law for the Future Fund, the Community Law School (Sarnia-Lambton) Inc., in cooperation with the Organization for Literacy in Lambton, has created a series of Legal Literacy Activities.

This legal literacy activity, one in a series on youth criminal justice issues, provides information about youth justice conferences. Learners are prompted to review information about youth justice conferences about the process, participate in a role-play exercise based on a case study, and provide written "recommendations" to a judge.
