Consultation on the listing of final hearings in adoption cases

The President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, has issued revised guidance on the listing of final hearings in adoption cases with a view to it replacing the President’s Guidance: Listing Final Hearings in Adoption cases of 3 October 2008 issued by the then President Sir Mark Potter. The President has indicated that recent cases have shown that the current guidance requires up-dating.

The proposed revised guidance can be accessed here: President’s Guidance Listing Final Hearings in Adoption Cases.

Responses to the consultation are requested by 1 March 2016 and directed to Andrew Shaw at andrew.shaw@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk.
