Bruno has developed a significant understanding of Family Law and in particular child rights issues. In Malawi, the age limit for a child was adjusted by the High Court of Malawi from 16 years to 18 years, thanks to the ardent litigation of Bruno in the important Child Age Limit Case. Owing to the vital change in the law, the bracket of vulnerable children protected by the Constitution from all sorts of abuse was increased!
