Mary Lazarus’ highly topical three-part article on “Reporting Restrictions and the New Transparency”, published this week by Family Law Week, is essential reading on this controversial subject.
Described as ‘comprehensive’ and ‘informative’, it covers: procedural developments; recent cases of acute balancing exercises between Article 8 and Article 10 rights; aggrieved parents; cases with international implications; and finally reflections on the President’s recent Transparency Guidance.
“This is the first part of a three-part article by Mary Lazarus, barrister of 42 Bedford Row, reviewing recent developments concerning reporting restriction orders and transparency in the family courts. In this first part Mary considers some procedural issues before concentrating on those cases involving clashes between the need for privacy and the desire to report issues of genuine public interest.”
“In the second part of her article reviewing reporting restriction orders and the new transparency, Mary Lazarus, barrister of 42 Bedford Row, considers those cases involving aggrieved parties and cases with international implications.”
“In the final part of her article reviewing reporting restriction orders and the new transparency Mary Lazarus, barrister of 42 Bedford Row, considers in detail the President’s recent guidance on transparency in the family courts.”
