About this title


The second edition of this comprehensive guide to family law, presents everything an undergraduate family law student needs in one volume. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors offer a detailed and authoritative exposition of family law illustrated by materials carefully selected from a wide range of sources.

The book has two principal aims: to provide readers with a thorough understanding of the law relating to the family, and to do so in a way that stimulates critical reflection on that law. Readers are encouraged to consider how and why the law has developed as it has, what policies it is seeking to pursue, whether it achieves the right balance between the rights and interests of individual family members and the wider public interest, and how it operates in practice.

The text is supported by a substantial Online Resource Centre, which features regular updates on the law, supplementary materials, further reading suggestions, and study aids. The ORC also features two chapters, Introduction to Family Law, and Fundamental principles in the law relating to children.

About the Author:

Sonia Harris-Short began her academic career at Durham University and is now a Reader in Law at the University of Birmingham. She has published widely in the areas of family law and international human rights and has a particular interest in how the rights of individual family members are protected under family law. She also has a developing interest in gender and the law.

Joanna Miles taught at Christ Church and Lincoln College, Oxford, before becoming Fellow of Trinity College and University Lecturer at the University of Cambridge. She teaches family and criminal law to undergraduate students and comparative family law and policy on the LLM program. She has published work on both family and criminal law, but particularly on issues relating to family property and financial provision on relationship breakdown. She was seconded for two years to the Law Commission for England and Wales to work on its Cohabitation project and recently completed the first empirical study of new Scottish cohabitation laws with Professor Fran Wasoff and Dr. Enid Mordaunt, University of Edinburgh.
