This textbook provides a clear and straightforward account of family law, while also introducing current debates about the nature, scope and functions of the law and discussing wider controversies surrounding the basic doctrines. This book is compact yet comprehensive, well-structured and engaging and is an ideal text for all students taking undergraduate and GDL/CPE courses in family law.

The book goes into critical depth on issues such as legal and social trends and developments, the nature of judicial decision-making, the importance of agreement, and the impact of human rights. This approach makes the book essential reading for law students taking undergraduate modules in family law and child law. Students on social work, social policy, health care and human rights courses will also find it invaluable, as will postgraduates and those studying the subject for professional purposes.
