This is the essentials version of the market leader in family law (Statsky's Family Law, 4th, West, 1996). It is a briefer, less expensive paperback text ideal for shorter courses or for courses that supplement a paperback with state-specific material. Chapters 2-5, most of Chapter 1, all cases, appendices, and assignments that require library research have been eliminated in this version to provide concise, accurate coverage with an emphasis on practical paralegal skills and techniques.
