This basic course will focus on legal regulation of marriage and other intimate relationships and will examine the sociological justifications for state intervention in families. Substantial coverage will be devoted to economic aspects of marriage (including the equitable division of property by courts as well as private ordering), child support, and child custody. This course will also explore the current relationship between U.S. law and the family, introducing students to a broad range of legal and policy issues.
