Transcript of Press Conference on Modernisation of Family Justice

“In February 2010 Mr David Norgrove, recently appointed as Independent Chair of the Family Justice Board and welcomed by the judiciary to his new responsibilities, reviewed family justice. On 3 November 2011 the Family Justice Review was published. On the day before, in anticipation of publication, the President of the Family Division appointed Mr Justice Ryder as Judge-in-Charge of Modernisation for Family Justice.

In February 2012 the Government published its response to the Review, and today we are offering our judicial response to the Review together with proposals to modernise the family justice system.”
