The Age of Criminal Responsibility (Scotland) Act 2019 (‘the Act’) places a duty on Ministers to review the operation of the Act with a view to considering a future age of criminal responsibility within 3 years of commencement.
The three-year review period started on 17 December 2021, the day that Section 1 came into force. In carrying out the review, Scottish Ministers must consult such persons as they consider appropriate.
The Learning event was established to support the statutory review, highlight and consolidate learning generated to date, and prepare the way for consulting with relevant stakeholders at the appropriate time.
