This chapter discusses the High Court's inherent powers in respect of children. The development of these powers, principally under the aegis of the wardship jurisdiction, was highly influential in the modern development of law and practice concerning children, and the Children Act 1989 incorporates many of its features. The chapter covers the High Court's exercise of inherent jurisdiction; the court's powers; local authority use of the jurisdiction; and private law use of the jurisdiction.
