DESCRIPTION

This unit is designed to introduce and explore important aspects of comparative family law. It will consider the history, background, and relevance of comparative law and focus on particular elements of the United States and Australian legal and political systems as they affect family law issues. The course builds on the fact that the United States and Australia both have a federal system and common law heritage. However, there are also important historical, political, and legal differences between them. As such, this comparative unit will afford students better insights into their own legal system by studying the ways important family law questions have been answered.
