  • Narrative Background

As the jurisdiction evolves, it is vital for practitioners to have up-to-date information in order to act efficiently and accurately for clients.

“It contains a really useful collection of primary source materials and the commentary is excellent. I particularly appreciate the way that the authors have provided a detailed history of the various matters covered in the text ... The book really is very good. It's a 'must have' work for anyone who does either finance and property or health and welfare work and is advising clients about C of P issues.”
...goes from strength to strength, having worthily achieved the same dominating position as its stable mate, ‘The Family Court Practice’.
