The Family Justice Council is holding its 16th Annual Debate and panel discussion on Thursday, 7 December 2023, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. The event will take place at a venue in London in person and will be live streamed via MS Teams.

The motion for this year’s debate reads:

The event will be chaired by Sir Andrew McFarlane, President of the Family Division and Chair of the Family Justice Council. The panel speakers will be announced shortly.

We aim to achieve attendance of a cross-section of all the key professions working in the family justice system and welcome applications from those who represent the interests of service users.
