The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive and accessible text covering the major aspects of family law. Family law is a dynamic part of the legal landscape and is ever evolving. It also intersects with other areas of law and involves many disciplines. An emerging theme in family law is that a thorough appreciation of social science research is essential. This book has a comprehensive chapter on social science which not only summarises the latest research but also analyses the case law to demonstrate how this research is used in family law decision-making. It also has a chapter touching on international family law, an area of increasing importance. The author team brings a unique blend of practice experience and academic expertise, to ensure this text will have a broad appeal to all readers. Students, academics, new practitioners, and also more experienced practitioners looking for a refresher, will all find Family Law Principles a useful resource.
