David Hodson presents keynote speech at the Irish Family Lawyers Association conference
On 12 November, 2011 the Irish Family Lawyers Association, being the association solicitors and barristers in the Republic of Ireland, held their annual conference. David Hodson was invited to be the keynote speaker, and in celebration of the 10th birthday of Brussels II, dealt with the impact of this law and of other EU family law over the past decade.
The conference was held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, because of the launch on 11th of November 2011 at the Royal Courts of Justice, Belfast, of the historic inauguration of a cross Ireland family law initiative, between family law practitioners in the Republic and Northern Ireland. It will mean much closer working on both cases and law initiatives, including cross-border child abduction, enforcement of maintenance and property orders and other aspects affecting families with connections both north and south of the border.
