Adoption in England

Dr Peter Hayes has co-authored an article which appears in September's edition of Family Law. He and John Hayes QC examine a recent change in the law: the repeal of the requirement in the Adoption and Children Act 2002 to give 'due consideration' to the racial and ethnic background of the child. They argue that the new 'colour-blind' law, properly construed and applied, should bring about a fundamental change to decision-making in adoption which is firmly rooted in securing the welfare of the child.
