Opening up family courts
There is a podcast of today's Woman's Hour (available for seven days) which includes a lively discussion of the benefits or otherwise of allowing reporters (under restrictions) into England & Wales family courts from this week on, as well as of the wisdom of removing some of those restrictions. Camilla Cavendish, who has been mentioned here before, is on the side of more reporting. Caroline Little (no relation) of the Association of Lawyers for Children takes the opposite view.
