Guidance on revision of the Public Law Outline

Revisions to the Practice Direction Guide to Case Management in Public Law Proceedings, more commonly known as the Public Law Outline (PLO), are due to come into force on 6 April 2010.

Ahead of the revised PLO coming into force, the Ministry of Justice has produced a guidance briefing about the changes and their impact.

A new form C110 contains an annex with a list of the six documents that need to be filed at the time of issue with the application for care and supervision orders. The rules will provide that only the annex documents should be filed at issue. The aim is to ensure that proceedings aimed at protecting children are not delayed by reason of a missing document.

The revisions to the PLO will apply to applications issued from 6 April 2010. However, the court may direct in any individual case that the revised PLO will apply in whole or in part.
