The introduction from 1st April 2008 of the Public Law Outline (PLO) signposts the most fundamental change to care proceedings for almost twenty years.

The PLO, its supporting Practice Direction, the Experts Practice Direction and the new revised Children Act Guidance and Regulations all combine to transform the way in which local authorities, Children’s Guardians, lawyers and courts operate in this area.

Written by four leading children law practitioners, The Public Law Outline: The Court Companion is the latest in the Family Law Special Bulletin Series.

Providing the essential guide to these reforms, this A4 sized carry-to-court book helpfully brings together all the necessary PLO related documentation within one cover, takes the reader through these key changes to practice in a logical and user-friendly way, and, through the chapter The Case Management Compendium, allows courts and practitioners to have at their fingertips the core legal principles applicable to the case management issues that habitually arise in these cases.
