Following Sir Nicholas Wall’s retirement as the head of the Family Division, the government has now published a press release to welcome in the new President of the Family Division, Lord Justice Munby, who will take up his position from 11th January, next year (2013).

Lord Justice Munby, a forward-thinking judge who has advocated for a more open approach to the family courts,  keeping government secular, and who has also been Chairman of the Law Commission, will be an interesting figure to take over the position.

He is also focused on the welfare of the child and kindly sat as a panel member on one of our Westminster Debates which was entitled “The Westminster Debate for K.I.D.S (Kids In Divorce Or Separation)”.
