The Law Commission’s Property, Family Law and Trusts Team are currently working on marital property agreements, specifically “A project, examining the status and enforceability of marital property agreements made between spouses or civil partners (or those contemplating marriage or civil partnership) concerning their property and finances”.

To this end, The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Family Law and the Court of Protection are holding an event in the House of Commons on Thursday 31st March from 11-12.30pm, with guest speakers Professor Elizabeth Cooke who was appointed Commissioner with responsibility for Property, Family and Trust Law at the Law Commission, Mark Harper, a partner at Withers whose work involves pre-nuptial and pre-civil partnership agreements and chairing the meeting will be Baroness Deech, vice chair of the APPG on Family Law. 

The event will seek to discuss the current proposals for legislation surrounding marital agreements.

Currently, the event itself is scheduled for parliamentarians but spaces will be made available for members of the public who would like to attend. In this way, it would be wonderful to have an idea of how many individuals would like to come along for this discussion, so that we can make provisions for seats. Please do leave a comment below if you would like to come along and we’ll do our best to ensure everyone’s accommodated. Thank you!
