Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Family in Law by Archana Parashar and Francesca Dominello provides a jurisprudential analysis of current family law, connecting doctrinal discourse with sociological, historical and economic analyses of the institution of the family.
The law’s reliance upon the nuclear family ideology is central to the book’s discourse, and provides the framework for in-depth analysis of the key areas of family law – marriage, divorce, children and property matters, as well as the legal regulation of abortion, assisted reproductive technologies, child protection and adoption.
The book is written for Australian legal actors whether students, academics or professionals. Readers are encouraged to question current frameworks, critique well-known cases and make informed conclusions about what changes could be made to engender a fairer and more equitable society.
In developing doctrinal analysis within a theoretical framework, the approach of the book challenges the conventional boundaries of family law, giving all readers a solid foundation and well-rounded understanding of this area of law and how it functions in the wider social context.
