A day in the life of ...


The aim of "A day in the life of ..." is to provide a glimpse into the working day of a range of people involved with the family justice system.... It is hoped that this series will foster a better understanding of, and provide greater transparency for, family law. 

We hope to involve a wide range of people – to this end, if you would like to contribute please email  editor@familylaw.co.uk .
