The Children Act 1989, Pt III Local Authority Support for Children and Families has considerable relevance both as an area of law in its own right but also, increasingly, to practitioners in the field of child law.

The recent threats to public funding in the more traditional areas of family work have led many practitioners to seek to broaden their experience in different areas. Judicial review in the field of child law is one area that has seen an increase in interest for child specialists.

In addition, an understanding of the duties imposed on local authorities to provide services to children and families is becoming increasingly important to those representing local authorities, children and parents in public law proceedings, where the need for these services is often seen to arise.

This new book dedicated to a complex area of law will act as a useful companion, both for those making decisions on behalf of local authorities and their advisers, and also for child law practitioners more generally.
