PUBLIC LAW OUTLINE (PLO)

What is PLO?

The Public Law Outline (PLO) sets out the duties local authorities have when thinking about taking a case to court to ask for a Care Order to take a child into care or for a Supervision Order to be made. This is often described as initiating public law care proceedings.

The PLO process is intended to be a final step before care proceedings are issued.

A letter before action is received by parents prior to the meeting. The Local Authority hope that parents will attend the meeting with a solicitor.
