Family Law Network


The Family Law Network is a forum for BNLF members who specialise in family law. Its mission is to assist busy practitioners and students with up to date knowledge of practice and procedure in a complex area of law and litigation. This is achieved through dissemination and exchange of regular updates by FLN members via email, WhatsApp and by live seminars.

FLN was formally launched at a seminar on 11 September 2018 at Bircham Dyson Bell LLP. The speakers were: Her Honour Judge Khatun Sapnara (Circuit Judge, East London Family Court); Professor Dame Carolyn Hamilton (Coram International); Richard Alomo (Barrister, No 5 Chambers); Janet Latinwo (Solicitor & Chairman, AFRUCA). The event was organised and chaired by Babs Akinyanju (Legal Adviser, East London Family Court). If you wish to join FLN please send an email with your details to
