This skills-infused coursebook introduces students to basic family law practice. Designed as a primary text for family law courses, it delves far beyond the foundational cases and doctrine, presenting drafting exercises, negotiation simulations, litigation simulations, and problems that situate students in practice and challenge them to do what lawyers really do. Unique for its teachability, this book facilitates efficient, skills-oriented instruction in large classes without requiring burdensome preparatory time. It is accompanied by a teacher's manual.
