  • The role of the law in settling family disputes has been a matter o particular debate over the past 25 years. In keeping with the genera public perception, the media have been largely critical about the role o lawyers in family law matters, sustaining a general lack of confidence in the legal profession, and a more specific feeling that in family matters lawyers aggravate conflict or even represent a female conspiracy. The climate in which family lawyers practise in England and Wales is therefore a harsh one....

  • While feminist perspectives on all areas of life and law are crucial to achieve a just, nuanced and comprehensive understanding of them, some might think that the family and family law are the first, or at least most obvious, places to start. After all, feminism is concerned to ask questions about the lives of women, and the lives of women have traditionally centred upon their families. In fact, feminist perspec- tives have been offered upon family relations since a recognised feminist move- ment began centuries ago.

  • Family law is of fairly recent invention, especially as an academic subject, credit for this achievement usually going to Professor Peter Bromley, who published the first edition of his now well known textbook in 1957. In the same decade, a practical text on ‘Divorce’, as the general subject of family law was then called, was published by Dmitri Tolstoy.

  • Historically, the law did not involve itself too much in the regulation of marriage. An individual was free to ‘marry’ merely by the exchange of vows, or by the act of sexual intercourse with their partner. This lack of legal regulation led to the term ‘common law wife’, which is still in use today, although having little, if any, legality or rights attached to it. The law did, however, start to become involved in marriage in the 18th century, and now legislation provides the rules surrounding the process of marriage.

  • This question contains three related but distinct questions, all of which pivot on the multiple meanings of ‘international’ in this context. First, why study international family law as opposed to domestic family law? Second, why study international family law as opposed to comparative family law? Third, why study international (i.e. private and public) family law rather than private family law? The answers to these questions explain the purpose, scope, and approach of this book.

  • Responsibility, like rights, duties, obligations, justice and fairness, is a concept employed by the law in the ordering, regulation and resolution of conflicts in human life. This book contributes to analysis of responsibility, in which there is currently a renewed interest amongst politicians, in law and in academic research. At the same time, as a term employed by family members to describe the nature of their relationships with one another, responsibility is a concept employed in the ordering and negotiation of family relationships.

  • The Family Law Act 1996 will provide the framework for divorce and separation, for mediation and for disputes involving domestic violence for many years to come. It will be up to the family lawyers to ensure that the Act lives up to its principles in supporting marriage and, if divorce or separation are inevitable, then in concluding the arrangements with minimum distress to the parties and their children and promoting a good continuing relationship.Any risk of violence is to be removed or diminished so far as is practicable.

  • This Casebook introduces the area of Roman law governing the most personal and urgent problems that free Romans normally confronted: the marital relationship, the power of fathers over their children, and the devolution of property within the family. This area of law is interesting even today because, although many parts of it seem at least generally familiar, Roman family law was organized and developed on lines that are radically, and at times almost breathtakingly, different from any modern legal system.

  • When this book was first conceived, my aim was to analyse the concept of family employed in a number of different areas of substantive Community law. The thought of writing a book which also included a detailed discussion of the family law of the European Union never entered my head. If it had, I should have thought it would be a very short book indeed. However, in the late 1990s, when carrying out research for an article on the developing concept of family in European Union law, I came across references to family law in discussions regarding the prospects for a European civil code.

  • The raids transformed the Listuguj Mi’gmaq community. “We fight [amongst each other] all the time,” said one Listuguj citizen. “But if trouble starts, we’re like glue.

The raid cut across family divisions.” One elder, remembering those days, said, “I’ve never been so proud of my people as I was then. It awakened something in us.

  • States are increasingly challenging the logic of simply assimilating refugees to their own citizens. Questions are now raised about whether refugees should be allowed to enjoy freedom of movement, to work, to access public welfare programs, or to be reunited with family members. Doubts have been expressed about the propriety of exempting refugees from visa and other immigration rules, and even about whether there is really a duty to admit refugees at all.
