About the event

Welcome to Scots Law Talks. 

Join us for an exciting evening where we introduce our newest talk in the Criminal Law Series: Kids who Kill in Scotland.

Taking place on Friday 25th October 2024 at 19:00 GMT, this in-person event is a must-attend for anyone interested or curious in understanding sentencing in Scotland.

In this talk, we explore every parent’s worst nightmare as we consider cases of serious violence committed by a child, in which we will consider:

At what age should a child be held criminally responsible? How are we currently sentencing young people in Scotland and are we getting it right?​

We will delve into the intricacies of these questions, shedding light on the complexities and dilemmas that judges face. By analysing real-life cases, we aim to understand the rationale behind various sentencing decisions and their broader implications on society. You'll have the opportunity to gain an understanding of key aspects of sentencing in Scotland, ask questions, and engage in thought-provoking discussions with fellow attendees.

Suitable for 16+ due to discussion on serious injury, abuse, and harm to children.

Whether you are simply curious about the subject, love 'all things true crime', or you are a student, this event promises to be both informative and enjoyable. Come and join us for an event that promises to be both thought-provoking and challenging, as we delve into this emotive subject and find out if you agree with your fellow judges! 

We are delighted that The Circle, Dudhope Castle will be hosting this event. 

Location details are: The Circle, Dudhope Castle, Dundee, DD3 6TU.
