Howard League launches 4 new films to support sentencers working with young adults


Through the Howard League’s legal and participation work, it has identified that the sentencing of young adults is a pivotal stage that is little understood but has life-changing consequences.

As part of its work with T2A the Howard League is exploring this area in depth and has produced a number of publications and short films to embed the growing consensus that young adults require a distinct approach within the CJS.

The films provide practitioners, lawyers and sentencers with authoritative information on the distinct needs and characteristics of young adults in the criminal justice system. Watch the short films.
