News Brief: Two correct predictions and a prediction

In my 2011 Almanac I jokingly predicted that Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly would be promoting mediation with monotonous regularity throughout this year. However, even I did not think that he would begin his campaign only four days into the new year.

I was also correct when I predicted that others far more learned than I would provide an analysis of the new Family Procedure Rules 2010. Lucy Reed over at Pink Tape has produced an excellent 'abridged version' of the rules, which I thoroughly recommend.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail, The Independent and The Telegraph all predict that the Law Commission will recommend that pre- and post-nuptial agreements be made legally binding. We shall see, when their consultation paper is published next week.
