Hayes & Williams' Family Law Reviews

Review from previous edition One of the best family law textbooks available...interesting, readable, well-structured and generally, extremely up-to-date. * Maeve Doggett, Assistant Professor, School of Law, University of Nottingham *
One of the most comprehensive textbooks... well balanced between critical theory and black-letter law. Extremely clear, concise and detailed. * Veronica Shleina, Associate Teaching Fellow, City, University of London *
In a subject swamped by good books, this stands out for its student-friendliness. It clarifies, enlightens and even entertains. It can be recommended as an undergraduate textbook without question. * Michael Freeman, FBA, Emeritus Professor at University College London *
