ABOUT FAMILY LAW
Australia's family law system helps people resolve the legal aspects of family relationship issues – including relationship breakdown, property and parenting arrangements.
The Family Law subjects in the Postgraduate Applied Law Programs deal with the legal aspects of working with families.
