The Association of Lawyers for Children (ALC) has produced a schedule of cases which documents brief case details and awards of damages arising from Human Rights Act 1998 claims made in care proceedings.

The purpose of the schedule is to provide a useful tool for ALC members and other professionals involved in family justice work.

Noel Arnold, Vice-Chair of the ALC said: 'The ALC has heard from its members that it would be useful to have an accessible reference tool of damages awards in such cases. The ALC has responded to produce this Schedule of cases and will update it as new cases are referred in for inclusion.'

The ALC encourages readers to submit cases for inclusion in the schedule and the ‘important points to note’ on the first page explains how to do that.

The papers prepared by Kate Makepeace Grieve (36 Family) and ALC Executive Committee member, Nicola Jones-King (McMillan Williams), presented to the ALC 2016 Annual Conference are also available on the ALC website.

The schedule of cases is available to view here.
