The Representation of Children in Public Law Proceedings

This study makes an important contribution to the evidence on the operation of the model in the current context. It explores how the tandem model is working in practice and whether the proportionate approach advocated in the FJR has been adopted. In light of rising care volumes and stretched public resources, the study also aims to understand whether any amendments to the model are feasible or appropriate in order to ensure the rights of the child are safeguarded, efficient judicial case management is supported and public resources are effectively allocated.  Click on link below to download
