Our conferences, masterclasses and seminars provide delegates with opportunities to learn about new developments, hear from and interact with expert speakers, and network with others with shared interests.

They are designed to meet the needs of the children's workforce and to keep workers well informed in an environment that is ever changing.

Learning from the Law: adoption and fostering

19 May 2020 | Bristol

FREE legal masterclass for CoramBAAF corporate members.

Cases that have been heard by the Court of Appeal and by the High Court (Family Division) provide valuable learning for social workers, managers, panel members and child welfare professionals working with children needing long-term care plans, including seeking court orders to secure permanency for the child.

There are few opportunities to hear about case law or to discuss the issues raised with colleagues and specialist lawyers. This event closes that gap.
