Webinar Re B (a Child); Placement Orders, Care Planning and Preparation of Evidence - Webinar


The Supreme Court case of Re B (a Child) (FC) [2013] UKSC 33 [2013] and the subsequent chain of High Court and Court of Appeal decisions in cases concerning placement orders require all parties to investigate, analyse and articulate the evidence which must be placed before the court in care proceedings. In this webinar barrister Ruth Cabeza will explore the impact of Re B and related cases, particularly in the context of the new 26 week timeframe for proceedings and other proposed changes. The webinar will explore:

  • The issue of threshold
  • What is expected in terms of the investigation and analysis of all potential options for placement of children
  • What is meant by a ‘non-linear’ analysis of the pros and cons of each potential long term placement and how to draft statements which will meet the expectations of the court in terms of that analysis.
  • Tips on how to ensure that your submissions assist the court in complying with its obligations in terms of producing a fully reasoned and therefore appeal proof reasons/judgment
  • The impact of the 26 week timeframe for proceedings and other changes on case management in cases, especially:
  • Where a rehabilitation is proposed, the extent to which the court and the parties may need to change their approach to supervision orders
  • The extent to which it may be necessary to consider the making of a care order at an earlier stage than the making of a placement order
  • Will there be more of a role for judicial review after final care orders are made in circumstances where historically the court would have adjourned its final adjudication in the care proceedings?
