Addressing Vulnerability in Justice Systems

Authors: Professor Penny Cooper (39 Essex Chambers) and Linda Hunting.

"The authors of the chapters in this textbook are leaders in their fields. Their experience and research should help equip legal practitioners, researchers and policy makers alike with the most up to date information about the treatment of vulnerable witnesses and parties in legal proceedings.

The challenge for all of us is to ensure that vulnerable people are treated appropriately and helped through the trial process, without adversely affecting the right to a fair trial. I am confident that with the help of the Advocates Gateway Toolkits and experts such as the contributors to this book, we can succeed. I wholeheartedly commend their work to you."
