National Director to head up ‘bench book’ editorial team

From 13 to 16 Feb Street Law facilitated a discussion with 60 magistrates from all over the country on their experiences with the implementation of the Child Justice Act 75 of 2008.

The aim of the discussions was to identify areas of non-compliance, inadequacies and/or challenges with the implementation of the Child Justice Act. In addition the magistrates nominated individuals from among themselves to form part of an editorial team that will be responsible for the compilation of a resource manual (‘bench book’) for use by magistrates. The editorial team will be headed by Lindi Coetzee.
