Naming children, ill thought-out legal aid reforms and more...

My posts this week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog included a look at three different but interesting cases, and confirmation of what we already knew about the government's legal aid reforms:

The labyrinthine technicalities surrounding a child’s name - Lady Justice King treads a route through the legislative maze in the "Preacher and Cyanide" case C (Children).

A Court of Protection case for our times - Re Z & Ors.

The Supreme Court decision proves what we already knew about the legal aid reforms - Michael Gove's proposed residence test was ill thought-out.

Court authorises DNA test of deceased person - My take on the case Spencer v Anderson (written, incidentally, before I had seen anyone else's post on it).

Have a good weekend.
