Course Description:

This course studies and evaluates the legal doctrines that regulate the family, focusing on the law surrounding intimate relationships between adults. We will evaluate the legal effects of marriage, marriage’s changing scope and social and legal meanings, the state’s role in recognizing and supporting family formation, divorce and its financial consequences, and how the law deals with conflicts over child custody and child support. Students will produce a legal memorandum, participate in a child custody negotiation, and write a short (one-hour) final exam.

COURSE REQUIREMENT: A legal memorandum, a child custody negotiation, and a one-hour final exam
