Sign up for Family Law team conference

The family law team at Manchester Law School is launching their first Family Law Conference this November.

The conference aims to attract a mix of academics, practitioners and students, and provide a relaxed atmosphere for a topical discussion around the papers. There will be extra time for discussion of the parental involvement presumption and especially its potential impact on the child’s voice.
