The President of the Family Division Sir James Munby has today (8 October 2015) issued guidance for judges and advocates involved in radicalisation cases in the family courts


Increasing numbers of children cases are coming before the Family Division and the Family Court in which there are allegations or suspicions that:
  • children are planning or attempting or being groomed with a view to travel to parts of Syria controlled by the so-called Islamic State; 
  • children have been or are at risk of being radicalised; or 
  • children have been or at are at risk of being involved in terrorist activities either in this country or abroad.
The President has decided that all cases falling within this description are to be heard by High Court Judges of the Family Division.

The President has also stated that:
  • the Designated Family Judge must be notified immediately;
  • the Designated Family Judge must immediately notify the Family Division Liaison Judge (who should liaise with the President of the Family Division); and
  • urgent steps must be taken, in consultation with the Family Division Liaison Judge, to allocate the case to a High Court Judge of the Family Division.
