Family Law takes a highly practical, student-centred approach to the essential law and procedure at the heart of family law. Providing a comprehensive guide to the subject, Family Law focuses on relationship breakdown, money and property, children, and civil partnership. A concise writing style and manageable chapters ensure focused learning, while chapter summaries and self-test questions help students to consolidate their knowledge and identify areas for further study. Throughout the book case studies and examples are used, demonstrating how family law applies in practice and helping to prepare students for their future careers. Family Law also features diagrams and flowcharts throughout, helping to improve understanding of complex processes or areas of difficulty.

This book is also accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre which includes further detail and sample documents to support the case studies in the text; author podcasts; updates to the law post-publication; answers to the self-test questions in the book; and useful weblinks. For lecturers, there is also a test bank of nearly 100 questions with feedback for use in class-testing and assessments.
