In the fifth and final webinar in this series, we covered the following areas:

  • What practitioners need to be aware of as defendants approach adulthood
  • Cases that can be deployed if a defendant has crossed an age threshold during COVID-19
  • Refresher of the case law regarding young defendants and 18 not being a “cliff-edge"
  • Dual impact of the removal of release at the halfway point for certain offenders
