Family lawyers sought to participate in survey about family law arbitration

Saskia Lau, a PhD candidate from Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany, and visiting postgraduate student at Exeter University, is looking to do a survey among family lawyers about their perception and/or experiences of family law arbitration in the England and Wales. Saskia is undertaking a comparative analysis of German and English law and practice in this area in order to understand fully the perceived advantages and disadvantages of this new form of family dispute resolution. The survey will form part of a PhD project.
