Media reports allowed on family law cases, after Shatter signs reforms into law

The changes to the in-camera rule will allow the media to report on such proceedings, under strict conditions.

The Government said the new rules would strike a balance between the protection of the privacy of the individuals involved in family and childcare cases and providing greater transparency in such cases.
