Source Currency: 3rd Edition, December 2018

The family courts dealing with public and private child law cases are inundated with work, involving the generation of large amounts of paper. Far more effective is the creation of a file which, from the outset, focuses on material relevant to the judicial decision-making process. Therefore, for each child law application Child Case Management Practice provides an analysis of what the judicial hearing will actually require, with checklists, questionnaires etc specifying all the necessary information.

This fully updated and expanded new edition will also keep you abreast of the latest developments in law and practice. It is the definitive practical manual on the Public Law Outline, generates best practice case management documents and provides synopses of the law for all the major applications. It also presents core skeleton arguments at a glance and focuses on the Case Management record.

This invaluable work is designed for use by the judiciary (including magistracy, justices’ clerks, legal advisers), barristers, solicitors, legal executives, CAFCASS, local authorities, guardians, the Ministry of Justice, experts and the Legal Services Commission.
