The former president of the UK’s Supreme Court will deliver a lecture on adoption, as part of a series of seminars organised by the Family Justice Council (FJC).

The FJC is a monitoring body which oversees the family justice system and promotes an inter-disciplinary approach to family cases.

Baroness Brenda Hale, who was the first woman to become the president of the Supreme Court, and the architect of the Children Act 1989 — the first piece of legislation to place children at the heart of decision making in the family courts — will be giving a lecture entitled, Adoption In The 21st Century.

The speech, which will be delivered online as a Bridget Lindley Memorial Lecture, will take place between 1 and 4 March 2021, from 5 pm to 6.30 pm.
