Why should you buy Advocacy in Family Proceedings: Theory and Practice
Advocacy in Family Proceedings: Theory and Practice restates the theory and established rules of good advocacy and refines them in the light of the specific needs of family lawyers. This fully updated new edition, reflecting all recent developments, explores the writing on this subject generally and then applies it to the various types of family proceedings, including applications under the Children Act 1989 (private and public law), adoption, child abduction, ancillary relief, domestic violence, same sex families and appeals.
It provides an invaluable guide for the student and the beginning advocate toward understanding the theory and practice of presenting cases to judges involving issues surrounding the breakdown of families. No area of law rests so firmly on the advice and evidence of experts, and the author therefore provides a background of the research available in each of the most contentious areas of family law.
"If you are involved professionally in family law issues, from adoption, ancillary relief and same sex families to child abduction, domestic violence, applications under the Children Act 1989 and appeals, this useful reference work offers practical guidance in helping you enhance your competence as well as your confidence under fire". Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers
