The alarming increase in the number of crimes involving juveniles as perpetrators as well as victims has compelled the legal fraternity to revisit the system in place for juvenile justice.. On one hand there is a need for effective handling of delinquent juveniles involved in heinous crimes, on the other hand, giving them an opportunity to reform and for their rehabilitation is the focus of the juvenile justice system. To understand the juvenile justice system and rehabilitation at juvenile homes the School of Law, The NorthCap University organized a visit to the Prayas Observation Home for boys as well as the Juvenile Justice Board II in Delhi on 23 April 2018. 

Under the MOU signed with the Department of Women & Child Development, New Delhi 72 students visited the home run by the Prayas Institute of Juvenile Justice. It is a short-stay home for juveniles in conflict with law. They are custodial children and their inquiry is conducted by the Juvenile Justice Board located on the same premises. Students got an opportunity to interact with the Supervisor, Probation Officer, inmates and the instructors providing training to the children of various age groups.
