Aims & functions of the committee
Our Child and Family committee considers law reform and practice issues affecting children and families in Scotland. At a stage of significant reform of family law, including the wider use of mediation in family cases, proposed reforms to surrogacy and cohabitation, and the incorporation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into domestic law, the committee is keen to ensure practical and effective rights and a legal system focused on the best interests of the child.
