    Description“An ideal template for how an undergraduate textbook should be written and pitched…[It offers] an appropriate balance of description, discussion and debate.  It contains enough to satisfy less able students and, at the same time, also manages to engage the interest of those who are more able and willing to go beyond the bare minimum.” Dr Sara Fovargue, University of Lancaster   “Family Law by Jonathan Herring offers a comprehensive and practical explanation of a dynamic and continually evolving subject. It covers a wide range of contemporary issues and provides a clear and an in-depth socio-legal analysis. It critically evaluates theories and approaches to family law and offers a meticulous discussion of the various legislative reforms.” Dr Ayesha Shahid, Lecturer, Brunel Law School, Brunel University   “An excellent textbook. It offers very good coverage of family law, is well written in an accessible easy-to-read format whilst simultaneously drawing out the complexities within the subject.& #8221; Dr Caroline Jones, University of Southampton   “[Family Law] is the most popular level 3 option and I have to say that this is in small part due to Herring being used as the textbook. The book really does capture the zeitgeist! It is a very good book.” Robert Jago, University of Surrey   Your essential guide to all aspects of family law, you can rely on this best-selling textbook to give you an in-depth understanding of the subject, offer carefully selected case summaries and extracts from important legislative provisions, and expose you to the key academic debates, research and ethical dilemmas which underpin the legal principles in this often controversial, but always fascinating, area.   About the author: Jonathan Herring is a Professor of Law at Exeter College, University of Oxford.   Editorial Advisory Board: Professor I.H.Dennis, University College London.
