Placing key judgments and expert commentary at your fingertips, Family Law: Text, Cases, and Materials presents everything the undergraduate student needs in one volume. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors offer a detailed and authoritative exposition of family law illustrated by materials carefully selected from a wide range of sources.

The book has two principal aims: to provide readers with a thorough understanding of the law relating to the family, and to do so in a way that stimulates critical reflection on that law. Readers are encouraged to consider how and why the law has developed as it has, what policies it is seeking to pursue, whether it achieves the right balance between the rights and interests of individual family members and the wider public interest, and how it operates in practice.

The text is supported by a substantial Online Resource Centre, which features regular updates on the law, further reading suggestions, and revision questions to accompany each chapter. The website also features supplementary coverage on the following topics: Introduction to family law Family relationships between adults Family property and finances Domestic violence Financial and property provision for children Property and finances when relationships end Child protection
