Posted in Family

RWK Goodman is proud to announce that Kim Lehal, Partner and Head of our International Children team, has been invited to participate in the “Forum on Domestic Violence and the Operation of Article 13(1)(b) of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention” which will take place from June 18-21, 2024, at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Johannesburg Balalaika in Sandton, South Africa.

Kim Lehal’s participation underscores our commitment to addressing complex international child abduction issues and advocating for the protection of children across borders. This prestigious invitation highlights her expertise and dedication in the field, representing England and Wales and our firm on an international stage.

The Forum will bring together delegates and experts from around the world, including judicial officers, legal practitioners, advocates for victims of domestic violence, and academic researchers. It aims to foster an open, respectful, and constructive dialogue on return proceedings where domestic violence is raised as a defence to the return of the child under Article 13(1)(b) of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention.

Kim commented, “It is an honour to be part of such an important event that addresses the critical intersection of domestic violence and international child abduction. I look forward to contributing to the dialogue and sharing insights on how we can better protect vulnerable children in these complex cases.”

RWK Goodman is dedicated to promoting justice and safeguarding the rights of children globally. Kim’s participation in this Forum is a testament to our ongoing efforts to lead and influence in the field of international child law.
