More about us

YouthLaw is a free legal advice service for children and young people under 25. We also run training, workshops and webinars to teach people about the law, especially in the areas of education, child and youth rights, consent and cyberbullying.

We write reports on areas of law that impact on children and young people and suggest ways these could be improved.

Our website provides legal information in an accessible and youth friendly way as does our phone app.
