Family Section

The Family Law Section of the SLS exists to provide a forum for those interested in family, child and related law to meet, discuss, exchange ideas and arrange meetings, possible conference(s), possible themes for the annual conference and to share scholarly activity in the broad area of Family Law. There are section meetings with papers presented at the annual conference of SLS. The Family Law Seminar held at Staffordshire University Law School each year (normally the first Saturday in February) is an opportunity to meet together with other section members from SLS and with other family lawyers from a variety of institutions and organisations where there is an interest in Family Law. The Section Convenors will be pleased to help with any queries.
