Local Authority Children Act Meetings

Local Authority Children Act meetings are a key part of the local authority's statutory arrangements to progress care planning in children's cases. ELS Solicitors on the Children Law Sub-Committee have been able to contribute to this important work on attendance of solicitors at local authority children act meetings. 

 

The following is an extract from a recent Law Society bulletin

Attendance of solicitors at local authority Children Act meetings. The Law Society's guidance has been sought on the application to local authority Children Act meetings of Outcome 11.01 and Indicative Behaviour 11.4 in the Solicitors Regulation Authority Code of Conduct 2011. Practitioners should read this practice note developed by the Children Law Sub-Committee.
