The practice of family law now involves much more than a simple knowledge of the substantive law and court work. With increasing emphasis on negotiation and mediation, lawyers need to be equipped with a range of problem-solving and people skills together with strategies to enable them to practice effectively. Written in an approachable, informal style, The Art of Family Law explores and examines the various skills needed by family lawyers. It looks at successful ways of advising clients, taking into account the emotional, legal and practical aspects that affect this sensitive area of the law. The skills described in The Art of Family Law will help ensure a successful outcome to every client interaction.
