Laws can be made by legislatures through legislation (resulting in statutes), the executive through decrees and regulations, or judges through binding precedents (normally in common law jurisdictions). Private individuals can create legally binding contracts, including (in some jurisdictions) arbitration agreements that exclude the normal court process. The formation of laws themselves may be influenced by a constitution (written or unwritten) and the rights encoded therein. The law shapes politics,economics, and society in various ways and serves as a social mediator of relations between people.

A general distinction can be made between civil law jurisdictions (includingcanon and socialist law), in which the legislature or other central body codifies and consolidates their laws, and common law systems, where judge-made binding precedents are accepted. Historically, religious lawsplayed a significant role even in settling of secular matters, which is still the case in some countries, particularly Islamic, and some religious communities, particularly Jewish Halakha. Sharia law is the world’s most widely used religious law.

The adjudication of the law is generally divided into two…

2013 in review

Parents Rights Blog

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

So far in 2014 viewed just over 50,000 times, what a leap. Thank you to all my readers. This is a community blog.

Social worker struck off for faking fostering references

Bringing Home Baby...

COMMUNITYcare.co.uk | News | Articles | 2011 | 0819

 

Kirsty McGregor                    Friday 19 August 2011 10:59

A social worker who faked documents she knew would be relied upon by the courts when arranging fostering placements for children has been struck off.

Philippa O’Callaghan, a social worker with 26 years’ experience, was working for Salford Council in 2009 when she carried out assessments of three couples, all of whom were prospective permanent foster carers.

For each assessment, O’Callaghan included the views three personal referees. However, when later challenged by her line manager, she admitted that she had falsified the references.

O’Callaghan also produced part of a Special Guardianship report in which she said reports from referees were attached – but she had not obtained said reports.

The General Social Care Council’s conduct committee found she had acted dishonestly, adding that “safeguarding provisions had been abandoned and vulnerable service users had…

Disgraced Cop In Racially Aggravated Assault

Mr Swain said Balneaves then yelled at the doorman: “Get off me bloody foreigner, get off me f****** foreigner.”

He then punched the doorman twice, causing him a small cut to the inside of his lip.

Balneaves was then arrested and taken to Charing Cross police station.

Defence lawyer Mark Lake said his client resigned as a police officer immediately after he pleaded guilty to the offence earlier this month.

Ministerial changes at the MoJ and the implications for human rights reform

Public Law for Everyone

Some potentially significant changes to the ministerial team at the Ministry of Justice have been announced. Along with the appointment of Liberal Democrat Simon Hughes – who replaces Lord McNally – as Minister of State, Lord Faulks QC is joining the department as a further (and unpaid) Minister of State. The former appointment – given Hughes’s relatively high profile as Deputy Leader of his party, and his criticism of the Government’s recent legal aid proposals – is perhaps the more eye-catching one.

In the guidance note, the court is critical of the number of costs applications it has to deal with that are ‘poorly considered and prepared by the parties, consuming judicial time far beyond what is proportionate for deciding a costs issue when the parties have settled the case. The judicial and other Court resources applied to these cases must be proportionate to what is at stake’. The guidance suggests that the onus lies on the parties to reach agreement on costs wherever possible and in advance of asking the Court to resolve the issues. As such, it is important for parties to do all they can to reach agreement on costs to avoid judicial censure and other negative consequences.

The Administrative Court has issued guidance on how it will approach the question of costs following settlement of claims for judicial review without a substantive hearing.  The guidance will apply to cases where parties agree to settle a claim but are unable to agree costs and submit that the Court should determine the costs issue.  The guidance applies to all consent orders submitted for approval by the court after 20 November 2013.

Court Estate Reform Programme

 

A schedule of the proposed dates for court closures and information on the transfer of work.

A full consultation on court estate reform took place in 2010. Following this, the Secretary of State decided to close 93 magistrates’ courts and 49 county courts. This decision was made using the principles of the national estates strategy and responses to the consultations.

Tranches 1 to 5 of the programme are now complete, with 89 magistrates’ and 48 county courts closed. Tranche 6 and 7 will see the remaining sites close by September 2014.
