Reporting the Family Courts – Are we doing it justice?
A collaborative discussion between those working in and reporting on the family justice system
This event, hosted by The Transparency Project to coincide with the publication of our Media Guide for journalists, aims to promote cross-silo discussion about the reporting of family courts and how we might improve it.
- What are the barriers to good reporting?
- What are the risks to vulnerable children or adults?
- What does good practice (for lawyers, social workers, judges and journalists) look like?
- How can the family courts and professionals in family justice work collaboratively with the media to enable public debate whilst protecting privacy?
The event will be chaired by Jo Delahunty QC, Gresham Professor of Law, and will take the format of a panel discussion followed by questions and contributions from the floor. Panellists will include :
The Honourable Mr Justice Peter Jackson
Sanchia Berg (BBC)
Brian Farmer (Press Association)
Dave Hill (immediate past Chair Association of Directors of Children's Services)
Will Moy (Director, Full Fact)
Gill Phillips (Director of Editorial Legal Services, Guardian News & Media)
Lucy Reed (Barrister, Chair The Transparency Project)
Debbie Singleton (Co-Chair, Association of Lawyers for Children)
