Child Law in South Africa
Child Law in South Africa is the updated and greatly expanded successor to Introduction to Child Law in South Africa (2000). In recent years child law has developed into a well-defined field, both in legal practice and in research. Child Law in South Africa, with its eighteen new and seven entirely updated chapters, is intended as a source of first reference for all legal questions pertaining to children. This publication is, amongst others, aimed at addressing some of the burning issues that are frequently dealt with in a multi-disciplinary way. It provides insight into the profound influence of recent legislation - e.g. the Children's Act 38 of 2005, the Child Justice Act 75 of 2008 and the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act 32 of 2007 - and comments on ground-breaking case law and the latest research findings in the field.
