Description

The Australian Family Law Teaching Materials 2nd edition supplement provides primary and secondary materials for use, along with the main textbook, in teaching and learning family law, helping students engage with “undigested” material. Such engagement enables students to develop essential skills in the use of primary sources (cases and legislation), and to better assess the authors’ view of the material and to form their own.

To get the most from this text, read it in conjunction with Australian Family Law 2nd edition, which gives readers a comprehensive review of Australian family law.
