Summary

For courses in family law for students in paralegal studies programs, broader legal studies programs, and those majoring in criminal justice, social work, and education.

Connecting theory, history, and practice in family law
Family Law and Practice prepares students to enter the workplace with a firm grasp of family law and procedural components of family law practice. To meet this challenge, the authors have divided the 5th edition into two parts: the first introducing the principles of family law and the second translating theory into practice. The new edition also addresses changing views on marriage, spousal roles, children’s status in the family, and even what constitutes a family. It also adds cases, statutes, and legal forms from a variety of US states to engage students across the country.
