New Comparative Family Law Guide

GlobaLex, an online research collection published by the Hauser Global Law School Program at New York University School of Law, recently released a research guide on Transnational and Comparative Family Law: Harmonization and Implementation:

"This guide points researchers to significant electronic and print sources in transnational and comparative family law. For a general guide to the major international conventions in this area, including aspects of the rights of the child, please consult sources cited in Raisch, Marylin J., International Family Law: A Selective Resource Guide (...); the purpose of this complementary guide is to indicate how these international conventions are implemented in selected jurisdictions and an indication of how to locate substantive national law under these same international regimes."
The document is broken down into 4 sections:
  • Major international agreements
  • Civil and common law approaches to family law
  • An illustrative list of national constitutions and legal sources for family law
  • A selection of relevant articles and books
