Why should you buy Reforming Family Justice: A Guide to the Family Court and the Children and Families Act 2014
This book contains detailed commentary on, and analysis of, the Single Family Court and the Children and Families Act 2014, Pts 1 and 2 (which deal with family justice), including clear and comprehensive guidance on the new regime and relevant rules/practice directions. The rationale behind the Act is discussed, through analysis of the origins of the need for reform, reflecting back to the Norgrove Report and Sir Ernest Ryder's work.
The reforms represent a huge change to the way in which professionals working in the family justice system will have to approach and deal with cases, and this comprehensive practitioner's text provides an invaluable guide thereto. Given the withdrawal of legal aid from April 2013 in private law cases, the book also provides clear practice guides, summaries and glossaries of legal terms, with a view to assisting litigants in person who are negotiating their own way through the system.
