The problem of litigants in person and vulnerable witnesses

Keep an eye out for Tom Wilson's article in the April edition of Family Law. Entitled 'The problem of litigants in person and vulnerable witnesses: lessons from the criminal courts?', the article examines the growing number of litigants in person in the Family Courts and the problems this poses when it comes to cases involving vulnerable witnesses.

Tom compares the reasoning of the Court of Appeal in Re K and H (Children) [2015] EWCA Civ 543 with a number of criminal cases and concludes that reform is desperately needed, but unlikely to occur.
