Abstract

In this first installment of the Family Law Institute’s “Academic Year in Review,” we decided to spotlight twelve articles, reports and books published in the preceding year (and a couple in 2008) which focus on family and children’s issues. Unlike many reviews, where the authors mention articles and books they’ve liked (or not liked!) over the year, we selected the titles with the family law practitioner in mind to help you make sense of recent developments in the field of family law and policy. We hope to introduce you to academic publications that could assist you in developing arguments in support of your clients, or provide you with insightful critiques of legislation and case law. We are featuring publications from academic and professional journals that specialize in family law and policy issues in Canada. We have also selected a few pieces from journals that focus specifically on foreign and international family law. Finally, we also provide a biography of additional publications released in 2008-2009 which are not summarized but may nevertheless be of interest to members of the family bar.
