Advocacy in Family Proceedings

Theory and Practice (Second Edition)

By David Bedingfield

Advocacy in Family Proceedings: Theory and Practice restates the theory and established rules of good advocacy and refines them in the light of the specific needs of family lawyers in the UK. This fully updated second edition, reflecting all recent developments, explores the subject and then applies it to the various types of family proceedings, including applications under the UK's Children Act 1989 (private and public law), adoption, child abduction, ancillary relief, domestic violence, same sex families, and appeals. The book provides an invaluable guide for the student and the beginning advocate toward understanding the theory and practice of presenting cases to judges involving issues surrounding the breakdown of families. No area of law rests so firmly on the advice and evidence of experts, therefore the book provides a background of the research available in each of the most contentious areas of UK family law.
