Developments have turned the study of South African constitutional law, even at an introductory level into a major undertaking. The purpose of this book is to guide the student of constitutional law in such an undertaking.
The growing importance of this area of law both locally and internationally has prompted a number of local academics to pool their knowledge in compiling a book that not only deals with the core aspects of the law but also covers developing aspects that are drawing substantial attention both internationally and locally.
The book was first published in 2004 and later updated in 2006. This is the third, updated edition. Our aim for this edition was to refine the text by incorporating changes in law as well as changes arising from the Legal Practice Act.
This title is core material for the undergraduate law module on the law of family. The text covers all the concepts of family from the perspectives of the different types of unions, including civil unions and customary marriage, children in the family perspective, parental responsibilities and rights, and family law in practice.
