The first substantive public hearings of IICSA
Paul Livingston has appeared in the first substantive public hearings held by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, in his role as Junior Counsel to the Inquiry.
The hearings, which have commenced over the past two weeks, are part of the Child Migration case study, looking into the institutional responses to the abuse of British children who were migrated to Australia, Canada and Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) up to the 1970s. This is one of the thirteen investigations currently being undertaken by the Inquiry, which is now chaired by Professor Alexis Jay.
Paul is also instructed on the Inquiry’s investigation into children in care in Nottinghamshire, which is being led by Patrick Sadd. Fiona Scolding QC has recently been instructed to lead the Inquiry’s investigations into the Roman Catholic Church and Residential Schools.
