Click Title For Full Article:
Law Society meeting to be held on 26 March 2009
The Law Society will host an event which aims to
"expose the potential impact on children's rights and examine the effect of opening often sensitive court proceedings to press scrutiny and trading families' fundamental right to privacy for the assumption that more openness will bring about an improvement in standards."
Speaking at the debate will be Mr Justice Hedley, who will focus on the consequences for trial processes, family practitioners and clients generally, Alison Russell QC, and Professor Jane Fortin.
