This is a podcast about children and the laws that affect them as they grow up. Alma-Constance, a 10 year old girl, discovered that when she turned 10 she would have reached the age of criminal responsibility in England, where she lives. That was a pretty shocking discovery for her especially as she realised that she knew nothing about what this meant and how it can affect children and their families. With the help of Lucinda Acland, a lawyer, and supported by Next 100 Years, they set out to ask some questions of leading experts to help children make sense of it all. There are a lot of laws and they are confusing and complicated and it is difficult to keep track and understand their impact on a child's life.
