This conference, which will be of interest to lawyers working in private and public law practice, will discuss difficulties of balancing the often conflicting interests of children, parents, the local authority and the wider community are all too familiar to those who work in child care. When things go wrong, the consequences can be appalling and the resulting political and media attention creates a powerful momentum for change.
