229 pages




This study of family justice in England and Wales focuses on the work of the family judiciary in the lower courts, where the majority of family litigation occurs. The study begins by reviewing the history and current context of family justice in England and Wales, with comparative examples from the US and Australia. The rest of the book looks at various policy issues that highlight the nature and role of the family justice system, offering empirical research on the roles and tasks of judges and how judges combine outcome- and behavior-focused approaches to family justice. The book also discusses the pros and cons of privatized dispute resolution and its relationship with the formal judicial structure. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
