  • Description

    More concise and practice-focused than traditional casebooks, Work of the Family Lawyer, 4E integrates the study of fundamental family law principles with analysis of the policy challenges and practical problems faced by today’s family lawyers. The “Reflective Questions,” which follow narrative sections of the book, help to stimulate analysis and spark classroom discussion, and the flexible design makes the book an effective learning tool for traditional classrooms, simulated courses, and in clinical settings.
