Event description

Description

This event marks the launch of SHARED PARENTING SCOTLAND, a new name for our charity. Key speakers are Sir James Munby and Amanda Masson. Sir James was the judge heading all the family courts in England and Wales until last year. He is now the chair of the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory . We will hear from him about his judicial experience of change and also how the Observatory is working to improve outcomes for children and supporting research and data collection.
The other main speaker is Amanda Masson, a partner at Harper Macleod LLP and Law Society of Scotland Accredited Specialist in Child Law, Family Law & Family Mediation. Amanda will talk about how the concepts of “contact” and “residence” could evolve in the Children (Scotland) Bill to embrace the notion of shared care. We will also present short filmed comments from a range of Scottish and international specialists on shared care, plus some quotes from parents and children who have made shared care work for them after separation.
Join us to hear these fascinating contributions, talk about about how legal and other changes will support shared parenting and celebrate the new name - wine and canapes thanks to support from Harper Macleod LLP.
