Solicitors and Divorce

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 1992 - Law - 195 pages
This book examines solicitors' activity in the resolution of matrimonial disputes. The empirical data on which the book is based were derived from the continuous monitoring of the files of 60 divorcing clients over a period of about 18 months. This has enabled an examination which is based on actual observation of correspondence between solicitors, court documents, and records of conferences and telephone calls. The vitality of the data provides an account of out-of-court activity which has a depth and currency not found in studies based on other methodologies. Solicitors' interactions with their clients are seen within the context of organizational, personal and economic constraints as they endeavour to reconcile the competing demands of their clients, their colleagues, the courts and the Law Society.
