Bromley's Family Law
Relied on by generations of students and practitioners alike, Bromley's Family Law remains the definitive guide to the subject.
Updated by experts in the area, Nigel Lowe and Gillian Douglas provide an accurate, detailed yet highly readable account of family law. The text presents a broad and comprehensive treatment of the key issues relating to adult and child law in a clear and distilled manner. Regular headings break up the text and allow easy navigation and quick reference for both students new to the subject and those in practice.
The new edition has been fully edited and updated to take account of the latest case law and legislation, while also reflecting new debates and emerging issues in the area.
