Course Overview

During this bite-size session solicitor and lecturer Safda Mahmood will examine the orders available in respect of child sexual injunctions, with specific reference to the use of the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court.

Whilst the High Court continue to use inherent jurisdiction to address the gaps in existing case law and statute, in recent years the application of inherent jurisdiction has become more restricted. This session will explore the changes considered by some of the leading case law authorities and the ways in which this approach compares with other applications under the Family Law Act 1996.

In addition, the following Practice Directions, case law and legislation will also be discussed:
Practice Direction 12D  
Birmingham City Council v Riaz and others 2014 EWHC 4247
Redbridge LBC - v- SNA 2015 EWHC 2140 (Fam)
Rotherham MBC v. M and Others 2016 EWHC 2660 (Fam)
Part IV Family Law Act 1996
