Family law: cases, comments, and questions
Thomson/West, Jul 5, 2007 - Law - 1044 pages
The 6th edition of this popular and manageably sized casebook retains the structure of the 5th edition and its emphasis on practical skills and contextual analysis. New cases, statutes, and notes reflect judicial and legislative developments across the country. The new edition includes materials on the 2005 amendments to the bankruptcy code and two new uniform laws. It also integrates the Supreme Court's recent privacy cases, including Lawrence v. Texas, with traditional family-privacy materials. Updated notes and additional problems test a wide range of skills and introduce students to practical aspects of family law.
