Working in the Family Justice System

The Official Handbook of the Family Justice Council (Third Edition)

By Elizabeth Walsh, Gillian Geddes

The UK's family justice system is a complex alliance between several diverse professions, all with different roles to play and procedures to follow. It is therefore vital that those working in family justice understand how each profession thinks and operates. This third edition - fully updated to take account of all UK developments - highlights the essentials of family justice and explains what the responsibilities of the respective professionals are and how they interact. The book sets out the important principles of law that underpin the UK system and provides an accessible guide to newcomers, as well as to established professionals who need information about the ways other disciplines work and are organized.
