On 26 March 2015, Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division, has issued guidance on the Role of the Attorney General in Appointing Advocates to the Court or Special Advocates in Family Cases.

This is an updated version of the guidance first circulated by Mr Justice Holman, when was Acting President, on 21 November 2012.
