Ashoka Fellow

Fellow Since 2012
This description of Shauneen Lambe's work was prepared when Shauneen Lambe was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Shauneen Lambe is changing the criminal justice system’s treatment of young offenders from one of punishment and stigmatization into an opportunity for positive intervention. Through Just for Kids Law, Shauneen is reframing the way in which the criminal justice system interacts with children in the U.K. by training legal practitioners, advocating for legislative reform, and bringing legal expertise to tackle the root causes of youth offending.
