The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, and the Children's Act 38 of 2005 have brought about a profound change in the field of child law in South Africa. This publication is a welcome contribution in view of these changes. In this book recent legislation is discussed, including the Children's Act, the Child Justice Act 75 of 2008 and the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act 32 of 2007. The latest case law referred to includes AD v DW (Centre for Child Law as Amicus Curiae; Department for Social Development as Intervening Party) (2008 3 SA 183 (CC)); MEC for Education, KwaZulu-Natal v Pillay (2008 1 SA 474 (CC)); Centre for Child Law v Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development (National Institution for Crime Prevention and Reintegration of Offenders, as Amicus Curiae) (2009 2 SACR 477 (CC)) and J v J (2008 6 SA 30 (C)).
