The Legal Assistance of Foreign Minors

The Barcelona Bar Association is one of the few in Spain with a specific shift for assistance to unaccompanied foreign minors. In this presentation, and as a member of this bar association with many years of experience behind me, I will explain how the shift works, the need for its existence, and the work that lawyers carry out as companions of minors throughout their transition to adult life; not only to guarantee their right to defense and effective legal protection but also to ensure that they properly exercise their right to documents, to obtain nationality and residence, to health and education.
