Rethinking Law’s Families & Family Law?

The ISFL 2023 conference extends to a wide and diverse range of topics and methods by sharing insights in more than 310 papers from 57 jurisdictions in 67 sessions. Panels will be clustered alongside their topic (partners; parents & children; the extended family) or method (international and comparative approaches; interdisciplinary approaches; and approaches pertaining to conflict handling).
