Sir Mark Hedley
Retired Family Division judge
Sir Mark Hedley practiced as a barrister for many years in Liverpool specialising in the law that affected those at the bottom of the social hierarchy. He was appointed a full-time Circuit Judge in 1992 and from 1997 to 2002 was responsible for judicial training in family law. As a High Court Judge he presided over many cases which attracted media reporting and comment. He also had management responsibility for other judges both in Wales and then in Greater London.
