Youth records can contain particularly sensitive and personal information about a young person. Who can access the records of young people? How do their privacy rights impact any such access? From education to youth criminal justice, and child welfare to mental and other health records, join our expert faculty to explore:
- What restrictions are there on access to youth records and why?
- How, if at all, does the reasonable expectation of privacy of young people differ to that of adults?
- When are parents, guardians and other authority figures permitted access to youth records?
