New working group formed

The President of the Family Division of the High Court has been asked to form a working group to:

a) Identify the various fields of experts where shortages are apparent

b) Identify any regional variations

c) Identify causes

d) Propose solutions.

The BMA is a member of the working group. A questionnaire has been devised to gather information about the shortage of expert witnesses in family law cases involving children. We would encourage you and your colleagues to fill in the questionnaire.
