Professor Penny Cooper, Chair of the Advocates’ Gateway, will provide her view on the role of intermediaries in the family court. Lord Judge, the former Lord Chief Justice, will bring to bear his unrivalled experience of children’s evidence in criminal cases and the lessons to be learned from criminal practice. Professor Lucy Henry will provide a psychologist's perspective on the difficulties faced by children in giving evidence.
