International Family Law aims to give graduate students advanced knowledge of a field of law that is of increasing importance with migration between countries and globalised families. It aims to extend students’ knowledge beyond Australian family law and to compare it with related law in the European Union and United States. Students will develop advanced writing and communication skills in the detailed articulation of this law in research assignments. The course is available in the Master of Laws, Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Laws Honours.
The course deals with the private international law of Australia, the European Union and the United States as it applies to questions of the validity of marriage, the recognition of foreign matrimonial and property decrees, and international child abduction. It is delivered intensively in four seminars over two weeks (two seminars in each of two weeks), and will involve closely supervised research assignments.
