Family Law (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Fresh, engaging, and thought-provoking, Family Law uses examples and scenarios that bring the law to life.

Students often find the complex and ever-evolving nature of family law a real challenge. Polly Morgan tackles this head-on with captivating concrete examples that apply the legal principles and reinforce learning. The scenarios featured throughout address topics such as international surrogacy and adoption, gender transition within a marriage, and controversies in the care system, to give students a forward-thinking perspective on family law that is truly reflective of the diversity of

families. It equips students with comprehensive knowledge of family law and gives them the opportunity to engage with the content at a much deeper level.

Polly Morgan's clearly-structured, paced, and guiding narrative through all the required material of an undergraduate course, married with rigorous academic analysis and examination of the law, provides unrivalled support to enable students to confidently navigate the complex and sensitive aspects of family law. It empowers them to identify, examine, and critique the mis-match between the law's aims and the reality, and to develop their ability to participate in academic debate with confidence,

criticality, and skill.

Digital formats and resources

Unique to family law, the e-book provides opportunities for self-test and instant feedback throughout each chapter, so that students can instantly identify any gaps in their knowledge before progressing further. Morgan also provides bespoke author videos that address those topics students report as finding the most difficult, and provides invaluable support and explanation that makes Family Law a highly engaging and supportive textbook for undergraduates.

The text is available as a fully interactive e-book with integrated interactive resources throughout, and comes accompanied by extensive online resources.

- Over 350 self-test questions

- Author videos tackling the most challenging topics of family law

- Chapter on elderly care (coming in December 2021)
