28 Feb CALA Spring Lecture
Following our AGM we were delighted to welcome Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division, to address us at our early spring lecture. It was a great success and extremely well attended, despite the freezing conditions outside!
Sir James gave us a preview of the new President’s Guidance on Child Abduction cases, stressing the central role of mediation, the disappearance of without notice applications as the usual way to commence Hague applications and the importance of applicant’s solicitors providing more information in the first statement. He thanked CALA for its valuable contribution to the Guidance. It has now been circulated to all members and there is a link on the legal resources section of the Information tab of this website. It is essential reading for all CALA’s members
