No Guardian Guidance
Date:14 FEB 2007

The Law Society has issued guidelines on Representation of children in public law proceedings, agreed by Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children. It updates Appendix 8 of Good Practice in Child Care Cases (The Law Society 2004). The 'Good Practice Note' seeks to clarify what solicitors should do where a court seeks to appoint them to represent children in cases where a guardian is not immediately available. It is not intended to relate to a situation where a solicitor is without instructions from the allocated guardian or where the guardian's physical attendance at court may not be possible. For the guidance see www.lawsociety.org.uk
