Life and death

My posts on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog this week comprised discussions of life, and death, in the family courts:

Should children be seen as well as heard? - Baroness Hale’s speech to the Association of Lawyers for Children Annual Conference 2015.

Judges have bad days too - Is His Honour Judge Robert Stephen Dodds the rudest judge in Britain?

Over his or her own body and mind, the individual is sovereign - The sad case of Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust v C & Anor, in which the CoP found that a woman had capacity to refuse life-saving medical treatment (she has since died).

Lessons from an acrimonious children dispute - In Re H (Children).

Have a good weekend.
