Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division of the High Court and Head of Family Justice for England and Wales, is once again at the centre of a media storm.

In a recent lecture to the University of Liverpool, as part of the Eleanor Rathbone Social Justice Public Lecture Series, he appeared to suggest that Britain should 'welcome and applaud' the collapse of the nuclear family.

Hannah Minty appears in The Barrister saying, "to no one's surprise, when you read the full lecture it's clear that the remark which drew such ire was taken out of context. The main body of the speech was a thought-provoking call for the reform of the family justice system, an aspiration which is shared by the vast majority of family lawyers."

Sir James Munby: a call for reform lost in needless controversy is available to read on the Barrister Magazine website. 

Hannah is a senior associate in the family team, advising on all aspects of family law, including divorce and financial matters, pre and post-nuptial agreements, property disputes between cohabitees, and financial claims on behalf of children following the breakdown of relationships between unmarried couples.
