‘Transparency in the Family Courts: Publicity and Privacy in Practice’

…Is the title of a new book, forthcoming from Bloomsbury very very soon.

Sadly I shall not be reviewing this excellent sounding new book for Pink Tape. ‘Cos I wrote it. Which would probably make me a tiny bit biased.

In fact, I co-wrote it with the most excellent Julie Doughty and Paul Magrath. This means there is a 2/3 chance it will be pretty good. Or 100% chance that 2/3 of it will be pretty good. But I’m not gonna tell you which 2/3s…. Makes it more interesting that way.

Anyway, here is a link to the page for the book, to prove it’s a real thing. Sadly, no snazzy cover picture yet, possibly because we three amigos are procrastinating about images…

Bloomsbury are also holding a rather bodacious sounding conference in London on 16 May, where I think i’m the warm up act for the real lawyers to follow on from. I will be talking about transparency (why it matters – what it means).

This real-books-for-other-lawyers thing is all scarily grown up and I confess to being slightly petrified. Massive case of imposter syndrome here (Can you tell?)…The Bill & Ted’s quotes seem a strangely apt nervous tic…(even though it is the most stupid film since forever)…

Anyway, I shall no doubt spend the entirety of 15 May repeating ‘We’re in danger of flunking most heinously tomorrow, Ted’.

Until then, party on transparency dudes!

  1. Don’t have an index. Then people who want to see if they are in it will have to buy it.

    Years ago I briefed a QC-MP called Sir Ronald Bell who wrote a book about the Crown Proceedings Act 1947. He told me that he would have made more money tarmacing the roads. You have been warned.

  2. I would say DO have an index! I now don’t take seriously any text or fact based book that doesn’t have one.
