Could talk about:
- Cautions offered to young offenders (Younger Offenders Act 1997)
- Free legal service to young offenders - adults must meet requirements (very low-income etc) for free service

This can come down to young offenders and adults being given the same rights, however young offenders are given greater protection. Unfortunately we can't do your essay for you, but I'd recommend looking into this.

Personally, I'd look at the whole Youth Justice Scheme (warnings, cautions and conferences) and support persons. There's a start. Good luck

P.S. Don't forget your LCMR -- Legislation, Cases, Media and Reports
