Product description

Why should you buy The Continuing Evolution of Family Law


The Continuing Evolution of Family Law brings together the papers from two one-day conferences held at Cardiff Law School during the academic year 2007/08 to mark the 150th anniversary of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1857 and the 50th anniversary of Graveson and Crane's edited book, A Century of Family Law. The papers, delivered by leading scholars and practitioners, both reflect upon past developments in family law and look forward to the future, thereby providing an informed basis for understanding the continuing evolution of the law and policy in this area.


"entertaining and well-written ... Why is this book good for the practitioner? You have an overview in each chapter of the development and issues of the sub-topic and the book in its entirety provides a 'meaty' perspective on family law right now ... you need to get into this book" Family Law
