Intoxicating liquors: make mine a double

Tom Harrill, St Ives Chambers

In a two-part publication, Tom Harrill provides a tactical guide to maximising the effective use of scientific evidence for alcohol in private law proceedings both prior to, and beyond, the making of final orders.

The article assesses the legal framework which applies to alcohol testing within, and parallel to, proceedings. That framework is then set against the current range of scientific evidence and thought, drawing on articles and toxicological research.

The article concludes with two sample orders for readers to consider and adapt as befits each individual case.

For those wanting to learn more about improving the accuracy and reliability of evidence in private family disputes concerning alcohol misuse, in order better to safeguard and promote the welfare of the subject children, this is a helpful and instructive article.
