Access to justice and the removal of barriers to ensure effective participation of vulnerable people in the justice system is increasingly recognised as a major global concern. Research over the past decade has demonstrated that trials involving vulnerable witnesses and suspects need to be approached in an appropriate and effective way by all parties, the courts, and the judiciary. This second international conference led by The Advocate’s Gateway and funded by The Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA), will explore the access to justice combining and expanding interdisciplinary research and practitioner knowledge to encourage innovation and best practice. The aim is to support an international network to share knowledge and practice and the proper presentation of such cases globally. This conference will facilitate the exchange of perspectives, ideas and strategies between jurisdictions and disciplines.

One in 10 children suffers from depression, anxiety or another diagnosable mental health problem, and 75% of mental illness starts before the age of 18. Following the Future in Mind report, we know what an effective and modern children’s mental health service should look like, and we have a roadmap for how to get there. Now is everyone’s responsibility to deliver on it so that all young people receive the support they need to flourish and achieve their full potential.  Attending The National Children and Young Peoples Mental Health Conference will allow delegates to hear practical advice and guidance that will help you to improve access and outcomes, reduce inequality and implement The Five Forward View principles across Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Despite advancements in many different fields of forensics sciences, its progress presently takes much longer than necessary, making the way in Forensics disappointingly slow. This impacts the efficiency of criminal investigations and causes limited implementation of new advances in Court of Law. The 1st International Caparica Conference in Translational Forensics aims to connect in a transversal way all of us involved in Forensics with the objective of joining together as many forensic disciplines as possible. The idea is to share the latest advances in forensic research and forensic technology as well as to report on their implementation in real cases.
