Convenors:

Given the numerous changes being experienced in the world of family law and policy, this stream welcomes papers which take a socio-legal approach to any issues within this field (and which are not more suited to the new Children’s Rights stream).

Possible themes of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Family Law’s Future
  • Online family law and justice
  • Access to Family Justice
  • Money, property and relationships
  • New discourses on Family Dispute Resolution
  • Conceptions of Justice in the new-look Family Justice System
  • Family Law after the Children and Families Act 2014
  • Towards a better child protection system?
  • Family violence and coercive control
  • Regulating non-traditional families and relationships
  • International and comparative perspectives on Family Law
  • Autonomy, equality, vulnerability and gender in family law regulation

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 18th January 2016.
