Following the success of the first family law session at the Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre in October of last year, organised by Family Law, a second family law session is planned to take place on Wednesday, 20 January 2016.

The event is once again aimed at anyone interested in finding out more about the Family Court, all professionals working in the field of family law, journalists and students. It is due to take place at the University of the West of England, Frenchay Campus, Bristol on Wednesday, 20 January 2016 at 17:30.

Join HHJ Stephen Wildblood QC, designated family judge for the Bristol area, and a panel of legal experts to hear about how the family court works, what it's like going to court and what to expect in terms of paper work, giving evidence and the hearing process in general. You will also get information about Legal Aid, the support available when you attend court by yourself and alternatives to the Court process.

Following feedback from the first event, the question and answer session will be extended to promote further debate – this will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about the practice of the Family Court.
