Children: The Modern Law is well-established as the leading textbook dealing comprehensively with the law and policy relating to children.

This fourth edition is co-authored by Andrew Bainham, Fellow of Christ's College, University of Cambridge; Barrister 14 Gray's Inn Square and Stephen Gilmore, Senior Lecturer in Family Law, King's College London, with specialist contributions by Professors Neville Harris and Kathryn Hollingsworth.

  • Detailed treatment of parentage and parental responsibility, including the impact of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and the Welfare Reform Act 2009.
  • Important decisions on relocation in shared care cases: K v K [2011] EWCA Civ 793 and Re F [2012] EWCA Civ 1364.
  • A new separate chapter on international child abduction, examining recent important Supreme Court decisions: Re A [2013] UKSC 60, Re S [2012] UKSC 10 and Re E (Children) [2011] UKSC 27.
