Forthcoming webinar - Family law in flux: Costs, funding and the single family court

Get the latest on what's happening to family law with our next webinar on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - registration is free.

  • The permanent revolution afflicting the practice of family law shows no sign of abating. Barely a week after the removal of legal aid from private work - with all the effects and unforseen consequences that will have on the business of family law - the President started to publish greater detail about progress towards the Single Family Court which will come into existence next April. 

    Add the momentous reforms to costs in the civil courts to that mix and it is clear that, as a practising family lawyer, you need to have a firm understanding of what's just happened and what's coming so you can provide informed, future-proofed advice now. 

    Nick Francis QC of 29 Bedford Row and Simon Edwards, a costs law specialist from 39 Essex Street, will help you take stock of it all this covering: 

    • the Jackson reforms to costs - what they are and how they effect the family lawyer 
    • changes to legal aid: what's happening on the ground 
    • the latest on preparation for the single family court: routes, resources and structure 

    and much more.

    As ever with our webinars, you will be able to pose your own questions which ensures a practical, topical and lively session. 

    Essential listening for all private family law practitioners and mediators.
