Launch of the Finding Fault report in the Lords

The Finding Fault┬áreport was launched in the House of Lords yesterday. Delighted to welcome so many guests who had helped to make the research possible or are interested in supporting the cause of divorce law reform. Many thanks to Lord Fowler for enabling us to use the magnificent River Room, Baroness Butler-Sloss for being a wonderful host and to Sir Ernest Ryder and the Nuffield Foundation for supporting the research. And delighted to welcome Lady Hale who was the major contributor to the Law Commission’s 1990 report ‘The Ground for Divorce’. As Finding Fault makes clear, the problems identified in that 1990 report are still much in evidence, in some respects even more pronounced.
