The Family Law A to Z is an essential reference guide for anyone starting out in family law, especially those representing themselves, for their advisors and McKenzie Friends and for students of law at all levels. Whether you are divorcing or separating, seeking guidance on children’s applications or financial matters, the Family Law A to Z will be invaluable to you. It features detailed and authoritative explanations of more than 500 key terms from both the English/Welsh and the Scots jurisdictions used in today's legal practice. Individually the entries provide the reader with an indispensable glossary, or together they form a comprehensive guide to family litigation.

5 Stars - Initially when I thumbed through this book, I thought it was merely a glossary that wouldn't be much use - i.e. if you understand the term you need to reference, you know it well enough to not need the book. However once I started reading, I found that there is a deliberate focus on what is required if you are involved in family proceedings in the English courts, terminology, history, process and case law, and that despite being structured as an A-Z (hence the name), it is a compelling read from cover to cover regardless. It's not written by the legal 'establishment' and thus there are honest appraisals of areas where the family courts are far from perfect
5 stars - Excellent! A must-have for any law student, adviser, paralegal but especially anyone who is representing themselves through the turmoil of the divorce process or the family court, either for child issues or ancillary relief. This has proved to be invaluable for me as a community adviser. And for less than £15, it's a steal.
5 stars - An absolutely fantastic reference book representing great value for money.
5 stars - So helpful.
