Young people’s guide to Finnish law

The Young people’s guide to Finnish law was written through cooperation of different authorities. It is intended to give a basic grounding in Finnish law and legal procedures for the young person who is preparing for a police investigation and a trial as an offender, a victim, or a witness. The guide introduces the reader to some key concepts in the criminal procedure and some types of offence that both the young person and her/his parents should know. The end of the booklet lists telephone numbers and other contact information for authorities and quarters considered the most important in this context.
