New from Class Legal
We are pleased to announce the release of a brand new title, Dictionary of Private Children Law. This latest release is a companion to the popular Dictionary of Financial Remedies.
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 distils 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.
