Our history

The Association evolved from an idea put forward at the first annual conference organised by childcare solicitors, and was inaugurated at the third National Conference in Manchester in 1992.

Membership includes not only those lawyers involved in work relating to children, Solicitors, Barristers and legal staff, who may all become full members, but also offers associate membership to others involved in working with, or for, children e.g. psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, paediatricians and Children's Guardians.
