Family Law - LAWS822

In this unit students undertake a detailed study of key Family Law provisions and cases and analyse the law within an interdisciplinary theoretical framework. This approach of developing doctrinal analysis within a theoretical framework challenges the conventional boundaries of family law as found in the main texts on family law in Australia. It will enable students to critically examine the understanding of familial relations and their place in society which underpin the law. In addition to understanding the laws related to different aspects of family this unit is designed to enablestudents to assess what is the function of family law and what changes, if any, are needed.
