This training equips lawyers and other legal service practitioners with specialist knowledge, attitudes, and skills to provide child-friendly legal services, supporting children’s access to justice. The training, which was commissioned by UNICEF Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (ECARO) and written by Coram International’s Awaz Raoof, was developed in close consultation with UNICEF country offices, lawyers and civil society from across the region and rooted in research on children’s views of what makes legal services ‘child-friendly.’ This child rights-based training aims to implement UNICEF’s Guidelines on Child-Friendly Legal Aid and is highly participatory, including case studies, role plays and other activities to bring the principles of child-friendly justice to life. The training is intended to be adapted to national contexts and integrated into existing training programmes to sustain the training.
