At last a journal has been launched to fill what seems to me to be a gross and obvious gap in the market. It has always struck me how our existing family law journals tend to treat financial remedies law and practice as the poor relation. Developments in public and private law children work, and in international children work, always seem to be given priority, bestowing on the money cases a Cinderella status. This is both understandable and at the same time surprising.
In my opinion, this is a wonderful initiative. Class Publishing has assembled an editorial team of the highest intellectual quality. They will ensure that the FRJ becomes the periodical of choice for financial remedy practitioners. I wish the project well. No doubt I will suffer a certain amount of apprehension immediately before each issue hits the stands, but that is as it should be.
The Financial Remedies Journal is supported by its website, www.financialremediesjournal.com (launching very soon), a dedicated hub for everything related to financial remedies.
The website will host the Financial Remedies Journal, a collection of long form essays and articles written by our expert Editorial Board and contributors, as well as a Financial Remedies Blog, written by a fantastic group of family law practitioners; a fully searchable case library with headnotes; FR Court updates and a PFDR directory.
