The winning title this year provides wide coverage of a fast moving legal topic, mixing the latest official guidance, in-depth case analysis and topical articles with columns from major groups and bodies. Authoritative and therefore invaluable to practitioners, the journal was commended by the judging panel for its currency, indexing, and clear and concise layout.

I’m pleased to announce that the 2017 BIALL Legal Journals Award goes to Family Law, and invite Senior Editor Jonathan Cailes and Law Reporter Samantha Bangham to accept the award on behalf of the publishers Lexis Nexis.
