Fully updated by Stephen Gilmore and Lisa Glennon, the 4th edition of Hayes and Williams' Family Law provides comprehensive, critical and case-focussed discussion of the key legislation and debates affecting adults and children.
The book takes a critical approach to the subject and includes 'talking points' throughout each chapter which highlight areas of debate or controversy and help students develop their own ideas and anaylsis of the law. Review questions at the end of each chapter allow students the opportunity to reflect and apply their knowledge and offer the ideal preparation for exams and assessments.
Cases are at the heart of family law and this textbook offers unrivalled case detail, with comprehensive summaries of key cases throughout the text to ensure students understand the development of family law legislation through the courts. Further case discussion is fully incorporated throughout the text to demonstrate complex points of law and offer a useful starting point for further research and debate.
The text also includes a range of further features to support students studying the subject for the first time, including legislation extracts, contextual chapter introductions, and further reading advice, alongside a clear and engaging writing style.
