Commenting on the retirement, on 1 December, of Sir Nicholas Wall as President of the Family Division and Head of Family Justice for England and Wales, Nicholas Cusworth QC, Chairman of the Family Law Bar Association, said:
"Sir Nicholas Wall has been the most distinguished family lawyer of his generation. He was equally at home with cases involving money and children at the Bar, a very rare commodity. As a judge, he was brave in asserting what he saw as the right way, especially where the interests of children were concerned."
