Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: As the pace of change in family law continues to accelerate, instructors are realizing they need a casebook that both provides a solid foundation and responds to current developments. Family Law, Third Edition, meets the challenge by offering comprehensive coverage, a mix of interdisciplinary materials, and a strong emphasis on teachability.

Every element of this modern casebook is designed to enhance teaching and learning:

  • complete coverage of the key topics of family law in three main parts: Marriage and Its Alternatives, Divorce and Its Consequences, and Children, Parents, and the State
  • broad selection of interdisciplinary materials -- on finance principles, genetics and statistics, clinical psychology, social history, and legal and policy responses to domestic violence, for example -- helps students understand the complex influences on family law
  • balanced presentation addresses cutting-edge issues while maintaining a focus on family and the state, the role of various groups involved in family law issues, and the effectiveness of law and law enforcement
  • strong problems give students practice applying legal principles to real-world situations
  • updated Teacher's Manual offers advice on how to teach the survey course effectively

    Refined and improved for its Third Edition, Family Law is now more flexible and completely current:

  • with the help of new co-author June Carbone, each chapter in the book has become independent to permit teaching in any order without creating confusion or gaps in understanding
  • reflects the trend to discuss domestic violence issues throughout the course in relation to a variety of topics, such as divorce, custody, and state involvement in the family
  • incorporates the latest family law developments with regard to same-sex marriage, coverage of Troxel, regarding grandparent visitation rights, custody issues, including the revised Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA), now called the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), and features expanded coverage of equitable or titled interest in community property
  • the authors integrate new cases throughout the book
