Abstract

The paper suggests that a different approach to the child should be undertaken in the legal system. Children should be viewed as a group who hold their own rights separately to those of the adult and should be acknowledged as underdeveloped in their logic, reasoning and conclusive thinking abilities. If those children were assessed on their own developed abilities, it is argued that the correct administration of justice should ensue.
