You’re amazing and rare. Fabulous write up of a very important set of issues.

I actually was a barrister for a decade as well and quit after my experience of the family court – both professionally and privately – was so lacking in terms of the themes you have described here. It wasn’t until I did masters level papers in sociology that I finally began to make sense of it all and finally came to understand what you have so articulately and succinctly put here (as far as a topic like this can ever be succinctly put). I really appreciate what you’ve done.

If all family court professionals were educated as you are, we might have a chance at really helping the people family courts are meant to serve and yet (in my experience) rarely do in cases involving abuse.

This is my story by the way – A Personal Story of Time in the Family Court & A Lawyers Challenge for Reform https://medium.com/@thejusticelark/a-personal-story-of-time-in-the-family-court-a-lawyers-challenge-for-reform-872e7a7b2b2e

I will distribute your fabulous article to my networks now as well :-)
