The third edition of this casebook covers a variety of private international law issues, including child abduction, international adoption, child support enforcement, and recognition of foreign marriages and divorces. The book also explores the impact of public international law on both domestic and international regulation of the family, focusing on topics such as family violence, “mail-order” marriages, the human rights of children, and same-sex couples. Finally, the book uses comparative law materials to examine traditional family law topics, such as the regulation of marriage, LGBTQ relationships, adoption, reproductive freedom, child custody, financial support of children (both public and private), and corporal punishment. 

International Family Law: Conventions, Statutes, and Regulatory Materials, Third Edition Supplement is available free of charge to instructors who have adopted the casebook. Please email to request the 1,102-page supplement.
