This new title is the first book to deal comprehensively with this subject matter in the context of practice within the domestic jurisdiction.

It enumerates and discusses the law and practice of children’s rights, with a view to facilitating the greater articulation and consistent application of these rights in day-to-day legal practice. The book contains chapters dealing with each of the key rights and their application within the domestic courts, as guaranteed by European and International instruments such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Rights of the Child: Law and Practice provides a detailed reference text for legal practitioners dealing with and representing children and families in England and Wales. It examines fully the relevant case-law and appends the key legal instruments.
