CHILD SAFETY SERVICES: REBALANCING THE SCALES
WEDNESDAY 4 NOVEMBER 2020
1PM – 2PM via ZOOM
WITH TERESA HINTON & MARCUS TURNBULL SC
Child safety is an area of law that not only impacts those parents and lawyers directly involved but also has far reaching implications across the broader community. Earlier this year Anglicare released a comprehensive report into the Tasmanian Child Safety Services system titled Rebalancing the Scales: Access to justice for parents in the Tasmanian Child Safety Services system. The report documents experiences of parents and lawyers in the CSS system and makes a series of recommendations about how to improve the experiences of Tasmanian parents and their ability to preserve their families and be reunited with their children.
FLPA would like to invite members to attend a CPD event hosted by Ms Teresa Hinton, the author of Rebalancing the Scales, and Marcus Turnbull SC. This will be an opportunity for members to hear first hand from the author about the most salient points from this valuable piece of research. It will also provide us with the opportunity to reflect on our practice in this area and educate us about possibilities for reform.
