“The Existence of Safeguards for Minors”. It was challenging, but I enjoyed every part of the process. I visited Trieste’s Minors Court, with the important help and support of one of IST’s Professors, and examined both when minors are victims and the subsequent procedures.

Busara, of course!

Slowly finding out that there is more to Law: philosophy, ethics and logic.
