The Family Lawyer's Library: Three Books You Need
20th June 2023
As you build your Family Law library, remember to include these three crucial books, if you haven't already:
At A Glance - over 100 pages of vital facts and figures
Dictionary of Financial Remedies - reference guide to the key concepts, cases and practice of financial remedies
Standard Family Orders Handbook: Volume 1 - the approved source of guidance to the official Standard Family Court Orders (finance and enforcement)

'I commend this edition to those who practice in this area of work; whether tasked with drafting a specific order or not, it is an invaluable resource to all' Mr Justice Peel, Judge-in-Charge of the Standard Orders
