Overview


The ideal revision aid, Q&A Family Law gives students the opportunity to practice their exam techniques and evaluate and assess their progress. The book is divided into chapters covering each major topic covered in family law courses, and contains approximately fifty questions and answers designed to test even the best prepared student. Each chapter contains an introduction focusing on important legal aspects. Diagrams, flowcharts, and a table are used to clarify issues, aid decision-making and illustrate processes and procedures. Each question is accompanied by commentary highlighting key points, followed by bullet-pointed answer plans, and finally a model answer. The book ends with a chapter entitled 'Putting it all together' containing a selection of questions each covering several different areas of family law, which will provide the perfect dry run at an examination.

The book opens with an introductory chapter providing guidance on study, coursework, and examination skills. Throughout the book, the authors discuss the most effective techniques for writing examination answers and tackling legal problems, showing exactly what the examiners are looking for. This sixth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to cover recent developments in such areas as the work-life balance, equality, civil partnership, the recognition of cohabitation, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, child support, the Adoption and Children Act 2006, and the representation of children.

Online Resource Centre

Q&A Family Law is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre providing annotated web links and a glossary of terms from the Dictionary of Law.
