The most recent issue of Briefly Speaking features two articles by JFCY lawyers. Check it out online!
Martha Mackinnon is the executive director of JFCY. Her article, “The Legality of Education,” discusses the legal structures that govern the education system in Ontario – key issues she addresses are the legal processes that relate to suspensions, expulsions, and special education. (It’s on page 22 in the paper edition!)
Staff lawyer Niamh Harraher has an article titled “Publication and Disclosure Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.” The article talks about how the Youth Criminal Justice Act protects the privacy of young people who are involved in the criminal justice system, when exceptions happen so that privacy is no longer protected to the same extent, and how privacy can sometimes be diminished (though perhaps not intentionally) in certain situations. (Page 38 in the paper edition.)
