Addressing Vulnerability in Justice Systems
“The authors of the chapters in this textbook are leaders in their fields. Their experience and research should help equip legal practitioners, researchers and policy makers alike with the most up to date information about the treatment of vulnerable witnesses and parties in legal proceedings.
The challenge for all of us is to ensure that vulnerable people are treated appropriately and helped through the trial process, without adversely affecting the right to a fair trial. I am confident that with the help of the Advocates Gateway Toolkits and experts such as the contributors to this book, we can succeed. I wholeheartedly commend their work to you.”
This publication, arising out of The Advocate’s Gateway inaugural conference in June 2015, represents not only the current state of knowledge from experts in the field, but more importantly evidence of a seismic shift in the justice system.
"...deserves a very wide readership across the globe. It would be hard to find another anthology with this range of subject matter. Professor Penny Cooper and Linda Hunting have brought together contributors from a wide range of backgrounds, with vital information about measures to support and empower vulnerable parties as well as witnesses. It is long overdue.
