Children in out-of-home care are disproportionately represented in the criminal justice system. This presentation discusses findings from a CRC-funded study of the views of judicial officers of the New South Wales Children’s Court on the reasons for, and consequences of, the cohort’s over-representation. It presents findings arising from interviews with judicial officers, and considers strategies employed by magistrates to address the issue.
