The Dictionary of Private Children Law is a unique reference guide to the key concepts, cases, and practice of private children law. Its A4 format and targeted concise content makes it a unique model of accessibility and portability.

Presented in an easy to use A-Z format, with cross references where required, each entry acts like a practice note on the topic setting out the essential law, key cases, and practice points. The book distills the combined experience of the editors with the aim of providing a concise practical handbook focusing on the most important issues and practice points likely to be encountered by anybody involved in a private children law case. The intention is to achieve this aim for judges and practitioners working in the field, but also to provide a book sufficiently accessible for litigants acting without lawyers.

'Here you have at your fingertips a well-written and user-friendly guide to the essential aspects of the subject, organised in a clear and carefully-structured fashion to enable the reader to find the relevant law in the blink of an eye.'

The Rt Hon Lord Justice Baker

'I am delighted to have been asked to write a short Foreword to the first edition of this excellent new work … its style and format make it an invaluable tool for anyone needing a pithy summary of the relevant law. The number of entries illustrates the astonishingly wide range of issues that arise in private children law. On behalf of the readers of this work, I have road tested the dictionary by reference to a random list of topics and have found it to be succinct, clear and informative ... I congratulate Judge Hess and his colleagues on this invaluable addition to the family law library.'

The Rt Hon Lord Justice Baker

'Practical people need reliable tools and the Dictionary of Private Children Law is an invaluable addition to the toolbox.'

The Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Baker
