The World Congress on Family Law and Children’s Rights brings together judges, practicing and academic lawyers, legislators and policy makers, doctors, health care professionals, non-government organisations and human rights organisations.
The Congress is a major event focussing on family law and family law processes and the rights of children and youth.
The Congress has been recognised and supported by the United Nations and its agencies and its co-chairmen have been acknowledged in the Order of Australia for the contribution of the conference to the law both internationally and in Australia.
The first Congress was held in Sydney in 1993 and was supported by the Australian government. Since then, congresses have been held in the United States (1997), United Kingdom (2001), South Africa (2005) and Canada (2009). Each of these has achieved or added impetus to positive change for the protection of rights of children.
