Family Law in Practice Summary

Family Law in Practice by The City Law School

Almost all junior barristers in civil practice are likely to encounter family law work in their first years of practice. Family Law in Practice provides a detailed introduction to the key areas of the substantive family law of which the junior practitioner should have a good working knowledge. Key aspects of family law covered include domestic violence, care proceedings and pre-nuptial agreements. Adopting a highly pragmatic approach, Family Law in Practice encourages students to build on their existing basic practitioner skills, and highlights how to approach writing opinions and drafting documents specific to family law. It provides invaluable practical advice on how to prepare for different types of hearing, what factors to consider in relation to negotiation, how to make persuasive submissions, and how to handle witnesses effectively, ensuring that the junior practitioner is fully prepared for his or her first steps in the family courts. Key updates to this new edition include coverage of the Children and Families Act 2014, the Crime and Courts Act 2013, and the Child Maintenance Service. Case law has been revised throughout and the major changes affecting civil partnership, same-sex marriage, and the Single Family Court are fully covered.
