The Law Society publishes practice note on attendance at children’s cases

Family Law|News|January 18th 2013

newsThe Law Society has published a new practice note aimed at solicitors attending local authority Children Act meetings.

Solicitors attend such meetings to plan and progress care arrangements for affected children. They may be representing the children themselves, parents or other parties involved in the proceedings.

The note is a revision of guidance originally published in 1994. In its original form it was aimed solely at solicitors employed by local authorities but has now been broadened to include all solicitors attending local authority meetings to progress care planning.

The new guidance was prepared by the Law Society’s Children Law Sub Committee.

The Law Society is the professional association for solicitors in England and Wales.
