AM Advocates are pleased to announce the publication of a new book on Permanence Orders by stable member Alan Inglis.  This authoritative study is the first devoted to Permanence Orders. It comprehensively describes the court process from initiation to conclusion. It guides the practitioner from considering the available orders into considering the rules governing the application. The form of evidence required is described before an examination of the expanding caselaw detailing the thresholds of the different orders, the role of welfare and contact. The book concludes with consideration of expenses and the exacting hurdles attaching to appeals.

Alan Inglis was Called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1989 and the Scots Bar in 2009. He practices in both jurisdictions but primarily in Scotland. He has appeared in many of the leading cases which are considered in this book. He has always practiced exclusively in Family Law, particularly public law children’s cases. Before that he was a social worker in Inner London specialising in child protection and mental health.

Alan is based at Arnot Manderson Advocates in Edinburgh and 4PB in London. He is a trustee of both the Scottish Child Law Centre and of the Equality Network, vice chair of the Advocates’ Family Law Association and also a Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers.
