The President of the Family Division, Sir Andrew McFarlane, has released draft guidance, for consultation, on reporting in the Family Courts.

Partner Hetty Gleave commented:

“Steering a course which, on the one hand, protects privacy and confidentiality in sensitive family matters, and on the other enables public scrutiny of decisions, which often affect fundamental human rights, will always be a challenge. However in an age where news is instant and formal court reporting is being replaced by blogging, change is inevitable. It must be welcomed that the family justice system has responded to requests for a more open and accessible system of reporting so that public confidence in the system, which is hugely important, is maintained.”
