This practical guide draws together all the essential practice material to create a vital working tool for busy practitioners. Based on the authors' extensive experience, their comprehensive teaching materials for a popular Law Society Children Panel Qualifying course and their contribution to the Law Society's Good Practice in Child Care Cases, it is a completely new way of accessing the huge range of detailed information essential to good practice in children's cases.

The interdisciplinary approach to child law is the cornerstone of good practice and decision making, but increasingly important in the wake of the Children Act 2004, which emphasises comprehensive safeguarding and integrated services. Starting with the fundamental components of good practice including human rights and diversity issues, this easy to use volume brings together the key sources of good practice for all those involved in children's cases.

Each chapter directs the reader to key themes and issues within core, specialist and complex areas of practice, with a list of material essential to each subject area and references to further reading. This makes it an invaluable tool for both newcomers and more experienced practitioners, to fill gaps in knowledge, improve skills and assist in critically evaluating the work of others in safeguarding children.
