Family Law is a popular textbook that provides a comprehensive overview of family law, along with an understanding of its context, its practical consequences, a focus on what the current debates are that surround the law, and discussion of proposals for reform.
It contains less procedural detail, more focus on current family law issues, and more commentary on and context of the law, linking to wider reading and critiques of the law.
The book strikes a perfect balance between academic concepts and relevance to practice – essential for students of family law.
