Professor Rod Morgan, former chair of the Youth Justice Board, gave the final presentation in the 2006/2007 New Developments in Criminal Justice seminar lecture series. Professor Morgan highlighted that there has been a 26 per increase in the number of children dealt with by the youth justice system in the last three years. He concluded that criminalising children is 'often counter productive, and for that reason we need to think more about resorting to the criminalisation label less'.
