Modern Family Law reflects the social diversity of the modern family as it examines the legal impacts of the women’s movement, the children’s rights movement, the fathers’ rights movement, domestic violence, changing sexual mores, nontraditional family forms, and developments in reproductive technology. Integrating valuable interdisciplinary perspectives, the text includes excerpts, notes, and questions emanating from history, psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, and philosophy. A variety of problem exercises, most derived from actual cases and current events, covers cross-cutting themes as well as the basics of family law. Human-interest stories that complement the cases heighten student awareness of the real impact of the law on people’s lives. Modern Family Law easily adapts to shorter or longer courses. The Sixth Edition offers contemporary perspectives on family law theory and covers new developments on such topics as alienation of affections, adoption, assisted reproduction, attorneys’ sexual ethics, bigamy, child abuse, child custody and support, divorce, domestic violence, grandparents’ visitation rights, names in the family, parentage, premarital agreements, and reproductive rights. The text features major coverage of developments on same-sex marriage, DOMA, and other issues of equality for gay and lesbian families. The decline of marriage and the rise of new conceptualizations of family are explored along with the return of the “culture wars,” including political disputes about contraception.

This edition examines new forces influencing media law while continuing to focus on foundational cases and principles that have shaped the field since its inception. New material includes increasing government secrecy and its impact on freedom of information; the latest on net neutrality; new restrictions on newsgathering including legislation involving drones; recent jurisprudential tests that unmask anonymous internet speakers; increasing potential liability for internet re-publishers despite older legal protections; newer changes in copyright protections in the wake of internet publishing; increasing judicial concerns about privacy and the reshaping of legal determinations including newsworthiness; and the increasingly difficult-to-answer question of who deserves shield law and other legal protections traditionally reserved for journalists. The casebook, written by authors who collectively have taught and researched media law for more than a century, focuses on the legal precedents that help shape judicial and legislative responses to today's new media.
