Reforming care proceedings: a socio-legal perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


Using the findings of the ESRC -funded Parents Representation Study (RES-062-23-1163) this chapter considers the proposals of the Interim Report of the Family Justice Review and discusses what else needs to change to ensure that care proceedings are completed within the child's timescale. Particularly, the chapter argues for continuity of all the professionals involved, not just the judiciary; a greater willingness to adjudicate; and changes in the way hearings are conducted to allow for more direct involvement of parents.
