Twenty four youth researchers worked together with Sarah McCoubrey of the Ontario Justice Education Network to investigate the level of legal knowledge of young people. Focusing on five areas that affect youth, the Research Team asked questions about where youth learn about their rights and who they trust to help them navigate these legal issues.The researchers also prepared recommendations for local government, young people and lawyers about how to address the gap between understanding legal rights, and the actual protections available to youth.
