Family Law


Frances Burton is a Research Fellow at London Metropolitan University, Co-Director of its Centre for Family Law and Practice , and Editor of its on line journal Family Law and Practice.


This book aims to bridge the gap between the traditional academic texts and the vocational course manuals used on the Legal Practice and Bar Vocational Courses, and also to act as an introduction to a specialist subject for practitioners seeking a working knowledge of family law.
It also aims to address the increasing impossibility of understanding the academic issues in family law without some grasp of the procedural impact upon the substantive law. Such a comparatively short book can only scratch the surface of some topics which are not included in all academic syllabuses, but which are worth flagging for a comprehensive overview of the widening subject area of family law. This may be particularly useful for vocational course students who will encounter in practice a wide variety of situations which will require them to think laterally as much as any academic student. For all readers seeking a wider and deeper understanding than can be imparted by an account of the principles of law and practice, the suggested further reading has some more detailed literature. For distance learning students, some of these can be accessed electronically from the publishers or the well known electronic library sources.
