An ideal introduction to Australian family law policy, legislation and key cases


Focus: Family Law provides an ideal introduction to family law.  It contains clear explanations and analysis of the law and its underlying policy, as well as a synopsis of the facts of, and excerpts from, the leading judgments in key family law cases. Problem questions at the end of each chapter provide the opportunity to apply the principles to hypothetical scenarios, encouraging discussion of the broader impact of family law.


Included in this sixth edition is substantial discussion of cases and policy relating to the current debate on the harmful effects of violence against children, centred on the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Family Law Legislation Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Act 2011.
