Family Law and Feminist Jurisprudence
Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 2
This course will deploy feminist legal theory and queer theory to explore how law constructs and regulates gender and sexuality through the legal recognition and nonrecognition of personal relationships. Specific topics will include parent-child relationships, children’s relationships with other adults, friendship, marriage, domestic partnerships, sex outside of relationship, workplace relationships, and relationships between former spouses or partners. Throughout the course, students will be expected to engage in their own theoretical analyses, both in writing and during class discussion.
