    Family Law (20018). 4 units. This course will address the regulation of intimate relationships between adults (through marriage and divorce, civil unions, pre-nuptial contracts, and the like), between parents and children (through reproductive technologies, adoption, child custody, termination of parental rights, eldercare, etc.), and state involvement in intimate, sexual and reproductive life generally (through the doctrines of constitutional privacy and equal protection, social welfare benefits, and criminal law, in addition to family law). The interplay among the State, family, and market, and the formation of personal identity in and through these arenas, will be explored throughout the course. Issues of socioeconomic class, gender, race, and sexuality will arise in many of the subjects studied over the course of the semester. Course materials will include primarily case law, statutory materials, and legal scholarship, but the social and economic norms that guide and are guided by the law will also be examined. Scheduled examination. V. Schultz.
