A new era of reporting from family courts in England and Wales began as a pilot scheme on 30 January 2023. Under the scheme, journalists and others are now able report much more freely about what goes on inside family courtrooms at certain courts. The easing of restrictions comes with strict requirements.

This webinar will review the current pilot scheme, the changes it has brought about and recommendations for future legal practice.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The general position on reporting of cases in the family court
  • Changes under the pilot scheme
  • A review of transparency in the family courts

  • BR v Ors, Re (Transparency Order: Finding of Fact Hearing) [2023]
  • Expansion of the pilot and future changes

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Friday 19th July 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
