Course Description

This course explores the changing concept of "family" under American law. We examine the formation and termination of family and intimate relationships with emphasis on the role of the state in giving or withholding recognition to certain relationships, and the increasing significance of contractual autonomy in intimate relations. The legal and economic consequences of marriage and divorce and the state regulation of child custody and child support are covered.
