Child-law deals with issues that specifically concern children's legal position, often based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This means that the subject passes across different areas of law and focuses on the influence of international law on national law enforcement. Through six workshops, the students will work with practical and theoretical issues in identifying children's rights and how they are implemented in practice. The themes are frequently based on current issues regarding children and young people's meeting with the authorities. For instance concerning integration, crime, imprisonment, violation or abuse or other relevant problems. In connection to this the students will also deal with questions about the legal consequences of a possible breach of children's rights. The first workshop is an introduction to the subject and a presentation of the essential sources of law and the fundamental principles. The following workshops will be based on issues in different areas of law, where the students work on defining the criteria that lie in the principles of the child's best interest, non-discrimination and participation. The six workshops are thematically dealing with the following subjects:
• Criminal law
• Refugee law
• Social welfare law
• School law
• Healthcare law
The individual workshop will begin with a presentation, which presents a number of basic challenges in relation to children's rights in the specific area. After the presentation, the students will be working on these issues more closely in groups. This will be facilitated by Anne Mørk Pedersen or Hanne Hartoft, who will supervise and guide the students. There will be presentations, discussions and case-based group work.
