This invaluable new work is a public child law companion to the successful title Children Act Private Law Proceedings: A Handbook by John Mitchell. The focus is on providing a clear, practical text with an examination of the key cases and an emphasis on fact-based examples. There are bullet-points at the beginning of each chapter summarising its content, procedural flowcharts and checklists.

The book is not simply a court work, it is set to become an essential companion for all legal practitioners and other related professionals, whether new to this important area of law, or more experienced.
