This popular, long-established textbook provides a clear and engaging account of a fascinating and dynamic subject, while also introducing current debates about the nature, scope and functions of the law, and discussing controversies surrounding the basic doctrines by placing them in a wider context. The book takes an applied approach and provides real life examples to illustrate how the law works in practice. 

This book is 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.
