The Children (Criminal Proceedings Act 1987 (55/1987) was 'An Act with respect to the conduct of criminal proceedings against children and other young persons'. It updated the proceedings of the criminal justice system for children and young people. It required that courts try to make sure children brought before them understood the proceedings, the allegations, and the potential consequences. This Act came as part of a block of legislation, with the Community Welfare Act 1987, the Child (Care and Protection) Act, and a number of other smaller pieces of legislation. In 2014 it was current.
