BBC’s Today Programme And Researching Reform On Children’s Right To Speak To Judges

Any reform must also address and punish overzealous Guardians and social workers who replace the child’s voice with their own, typically by making false, misleading and inaccurate reports to the court, incapable of withstanding objective scrutiny.

Researching Reform

BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme this morning focuses on children’s right to speak with family law judges. Researching Reform had the privilege of talking with Sanchia Berg about the policy, what happened to it and why it was needed.

The piece includes thoughts from a boy called Oscar, who says he feels children should have the right to speak to judges and that it would make the process more friendly.

An extract from our conversation can be heard at around 0:52:00 over on BBC Radio 4’s live player, and the accompanying article on the topic can be read here.

For a summary of this policy, and its development over the last ten years, our Lexis Nexis article offers a complete history.

Many thanks to Sanchia for inviting us to share our thoughts.
