Couple Cleared Of Child Abuse Campaign For Change In The Law


Another great blog Natasha Phillips, editor at Researching Reform. 

There have been a number of cases of innocent parents losing their children to the care and adoption system. As a result a number of campaigners are trying to change the law.


As Michael Turner QC notes, cases where parents have been wrongly accused of harming their children are common, and having assisted on several cases like this it’s only in rare circumstances that we’re able to halt the court process and prevent an unjust outcome for children and their families. The system, slow and intractable, makes it almost impossible to go back and rectify mistakes. Indeed, the system seems loathe to do it.

Campaigners want a change in the law so that cases running alongside one another could be dealt with at the same time, to ensure each trial informs the other. Natasha asks is that really the answer?
