Message from Chairman of FLBA :

I am, of course, aware of the extraordinary problems encountered by many applicants during the latest round of the current Recorder Competition.

I know that this includes many members of the FLBA.

I am attending a meeting with Lord Justice Burnett on Thursday 16 March to discuss what is to be done.

If you have taken (or attempted to take) the second round exercise and encountered problems, please would you email Khadija Khan on providing a brief outline of the problems you encountered, how that has affected you and confirmation of whether you have notified the JAC.

I need this information urgently, by not later than 11am on Thursday 16 March

Thank you for your assistance

Philip J Marshall QC

Chairman of the Family Law Bar Association
