Children and the Law in Australia
Monahan, G; Young, L
Format: Academic, Softcover , Book
This new work provides a comprehensive and thought provoking coverage of the ways in which the law and children interact. Apart from being a valuable resource to those working with children, this book will greatly assist those teaching in this area, whether in law schools or other disciplines, as there is currently little on the market which address the breadth of this important topic.
The editors have brought together a range of expert authors in public and private law areas such as criminal law, human rights law, immigration law, family law, medical law, disability and discrimination law, education and the legal process.
The book is designed not only to highlight the relevant law in each area, but also to identify where the current debates lie for each topic.
