Overview

If you want insight into the Family Law issues that reflect our contemporary social and economic diversity, consider Modern Family Law, Second Edition. Blending cases, notes, and problems with interdisciplinary materials, this solid yet sophisticated learning tool offers contemporary coverage of the legal issues facing today's families.

The casebook covers essential material:

  • the text reflects the social diversity of the modern family and examines the women's movement, the children's rights movement, changing sexual mores, alternative family formations, and developments in reproductive technology
  • valuable interdisciplinary perspectives include excerpts, notes, and questions from history, psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, and philosophy
  • thorough coverage of Family Law basics sets the stage for more expansive topics
  • to heighten student awareness of the real impact of the law on people's lives, the authors include narratives that look behind the cases and statutes the authors are highly regarded in both Family Law and feminist circles

For the Second Edition, the authors add important new material without lengthening the book:

  • new cases, problems, and materials throughout the thoroughly updated text
  • latest coverage of same-sex marriage, including Baker v. State from Vermont and other recent developments in gay and lesbian rights grandparents' rights, illustrated by the Troxel case heard by the U.S. Supreme court
  • a host of high-profile cases, such as: Stenberg v. Carhart, the Supreme Court's most recent abortion case, State v. Oakley, restricting a deadbeat parent's right to procreate, A.Z. v. B.Z., resolving a post-divorce dispute about frozen embryos, In re Marriage of Buzzanca, determining parentage for children of assisted reproduction

For the most current coverage of the full range of Family Law issues from regulation of the intact marriage to alternatives to adoption with a distinctly progressive approach, consider Modern Family Law, Second Edition.
