Buckingham Law School has a long tradition of attracting excellent guest speakers who enrich the curriculum and student experience for our whole student body and our surrounding community.
Lady Hale’s illuminating talk about the development of the law from a basis in affinity and consanguinity being the defining features in the legal recognition of family relationships to changes throughout the 20th and 21st century leading to the recognition of same sex marriage, same sex parents and changes to the recognition of surrogacy as a method of procreation. Lady Hale also suggested further areas for reform, particularly in respect of violence and abuse within the home, the difficulties caused by religious marriages that are not recognised by the state, and the need for a single simple application process to the family courts.
The talk attracted a large audience, who posed wide ranging questions which Lady Hale clearly enjoyed answering. The whole event was a masterclass in family law, accessible to everyone, and illuminating.
