Bristol legal event – bring gum

Readers in the West Country  (I am striving to avoid any Wurzels references, and immediately failing) might be interested in this event.  It is going to be attended by His Honour Judge Rowdy Roddy Piper  (subs, please correct), hence the suggestion to bring gum.


I don’t know all of the speakers here, but the ones that I do know of, I think very highly of, so if you are in that neck of the woods, well worth checking out.



What does the Family Court do? … This is your chance to find out.

Join His Honour Judge Stephen Wildblood QC, designated family judge for the Bristol area, and a panel of legal experts to hear about how the Family Court works, what to expect and where to get helpful information.

Find out what the Family Court does, what it’s like going to Court and what to expect in terms of: paper work, giving evidence and the hearing process in general.

Get information about Legal Aid, the support available when you attend Court by yourself and alternatives to the Court process.

This will be an opportunity for you to come to the court building and ask questions about the practice of the Family Court.*

  1. I think this is a great initiative from HHJ Wildblood, and I hope it is well-attended. I wonder if other Judges would follow HHJ Wildblood’s lead and also facilitate similar events in other locations across the country?
