Representation of children in public law proceedings

A study has concluded that children should continue to be represented by both a publicly-funded legal representative and a Cafcass guardian, known as the ‘tandem model’ of representation. Research has explored how this model is working in practice during public law proceedings, and whether any reforms to the model are feasible or appropriate to ensure the rights of the child are safeguarded, efficient judicial case management is supported and public resources are effectively allocated.

This report presents the findings from a mixed-method, two-phased study.
