Children: The Inherent Jurisdiction and Wardship

A Family Practitioner's Handbook

By Michael D. Jones

The inherent jurisdiction (including wardship) is an ever-developing concept within family proceedings, with a number of important recently reported authorities setting down parameters in respect of its use. The jurisdiction is increasingly used in order to protect children in novel and fact-specific situations, which are becoming more regular in today's world. This invaluable practitioner title provides family lawyers with a comprehensive guide to the inherent jurisdiction-the situations in which it can be invoked and its limitations-incorporating the relevant authorities and procedural guidance into an easily accessible text.
