LAW 712 - Family Law
This course surveys family law, including the marital relationship, cohabitation, divorce, support, distribution of property, and child custody. A major focus is on recent decisions and legislation affecting children, family privacy, divorce litigation, equitable distribution, and adoption. The course emphasizes the interrelationship and conflicts between the traditional concepts of marriage, legitimacy, and status, and the emerging legal concepts of financial independence, "palimony," sexual freedom, the rights of unmarried parents, "surrogate" parents, and no-fault divorce.
