Family law barrister, Lucy Reed KC alongside an author team from The Transparency Project have written the second edition of ‘Transparency in the Family Courts – Publicity and Privacy in Practice’, printed by Bloomsbury Professional.

This book provides a detailed practical guide to the relevant legislation, case law, policy and procedure, and how the balance between privacy and publicity has changed over time. It is essential reading for family law practitioners in private practice, local authorities and other public bodies, as well as media lawyers, journalists and social workers.

The team of authors include Julie Doughty, a Lecturer in Law in the School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University, and Paul Magrath, a Barrister with the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales.

Lucy is the author of The Family Court without a Lawyer – A Handbook for litigants in person (Bath Publishing, 2022) and the award-winning ‘Pink Tape’ blog, and the Chair of The Transparency Project. Find out more about Lucy here.
