The third edition of this major work evaluates the entire Irish child law system. The subject matter contained in the book provides an opportunity for examining the relationship that exists, or ought to exist, between child welfare and parental rights. It examines the rights and duties of parents and children in respect of each other. It considers how best to balance the welfare of children who may require care, with the right of children and their families to protection from unwarranted State intervention.

This edition takes into account the new constitutional provision, Article 42A, and several new statutes including the Children First Act 2015 and the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015. It also includes the new District, Circuit, High Court of Appeal and Supreme Court Rules.
