Russell-Cooke partner, James Carroll, has been appointed as joint chair of the Law Society's Family Law Committee. James will take up this appointment alongside his joint chair, Naomi Angell of Osbornes, in September 2011 for a period of 3 years.

The Family Law Committee, made up of solicitors specialising in all areas of family law, identifies and addresses areas of family law which need review and reform.

The appointment coincides with a pivotal time in family law, as The Family Justice Review and proposals on changes to legal aid will affect many families and children. James is keen to ensure that everyone has proper access to justice, laws and procedure, helping people through some of the most difficult times in their lives.
