Public Law Outline
Date:6 JUL 2007

The care proceedings reviews recommendations are being implemented through two key strands of work. Firstly, revised statutory guidance to local authorities (Volume 1 'Court Orders' of the Children Act 1989 guidance), is due to be published by the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Welsh Assembly Government in the autumn, following public consultation (see below). Secondly, the current Protocol for Judicial Case Management in Public Law Children Act Cases, which sets out the different stages of the court process as care cases progress through the system, will be replaced with a new streamlined Public Law Outline (PLO), from April 2008. For more information see July and August [2007] Fam Law. To view the current draft of the PLO click on the attached PDF.
