Sarah Anticoni interviewed by BBC on Civil Partnership Ruling
Family lawyer Sarah Anticoni was interviewed by the BBC on the Civil Partnership Ruling that took place on 21 February, which resulted in a heterosexual couple losing their Court of Appeal battle for the right to enter into a civil partnership. During her interview, Sarah spoke about the issue of family law lagging behind social change and highlighted that other than private members bills being pushed through parliament, there is little appetite from the government to introduce any family law that reflects social changes.
Furthermore, whilst discussing the lack of protection for couples who cohabit rather than marry, Sarah stressed the gap in the legal framework with no body of law dealing with the issues surrounding contractual arrangements.
