Scottish Child Law Centre

Masterclass and Open Training Programme 2019/2020


Our training courses and masterclasses are designed to take account of the very latest legislation and good practice guidelines, and delivered by our solicitors. Member and various discounts apply. 

We are a recognised leader in the provision of training on children’s rights and the law as it affects children in Scotland. We provide a twice yearly programme of training courses which cover a wide range of topics and issues. Courses are designed to work in combination and as stand alone courses.

Training is provided by qualified solicitors employed by SCLC. Each course is an intensive learning experience in a venue in Central Edinburgh allowing for travel from most parts of Scotland. The training sets out the legal framework for the topic with the use of scenarios, case studies, questions and informal discussion to provide practical application for those working with children in a range of contexts.
