Overview

Family Law, Fourth Edition, addresses the need to rethink the traditional family model. To assist that effort, the materials in this book have been selected to develop several important themes:

  • The tension between private ordering and state supervision in family law
  • The importance of constitutional doctrines that have been invoked to limit state regulation of family law
  • Attention to the ethical dilemmas unique to the field: Is it appropriate, for example, to represent both husband and wife in a divorce? How can an attorney represent a child who is too young to talk?
The materials in Family Law and its helpful Teacher's Manual are designed to help enrich classroom discussion and prepare students to practice in this challenging field.
