NYAS young people have been involved for a number of years in a project to raise awareness of the issues regarding opening up the family courts to media access and the publication of Family Court judgements on BAILII (British and Irish Legal Information Institute)

NYAS have worked with Dr Julia Brophy researching whether young people in anonymised judgements which are placed on BAILII could be identified – to find out more about this work please read – Link to “A Review of anonymised judgements on BAILII: Children, privacy and “jigsaw identification””

NYAS have presented their findings to Sir James Munby (President of the Family Law Division) at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Sir James has been very supportive of the young people’s work and they have also presented their findings at the Association for Lawyers for Children Conference I last November.
