The text is enlivened by numerous examples and incorporates the collective wisdom of family jurisdiction judges, leading barristers, solicitors and expert witnesses. In addition, Practice Directions, Protocols and Guidelines governing the presentation of cases are reproduced in the Appendix.

This book provides a guide for the student and the beginning advocate toward understanding the theory and practice of presenting cases to judges involving issues surrounding the breakdown of families. No area of law rests so firmly on the advice and evidence of experts, and the author seeks to provide a background of the research available in each of the most contentious areas of family law.

Therefore this text focuses on the latest research regarding topics such as non-accidental injuries to children, the evidence of child witnesses and the victims, and the difficulties of determining the causes of sudden infant deaths.
