Family Law Scholarship by Professor Joslin Reviewed in Jotwell

An article by Professor Courtney Joslin is the subject of a review by Professor Kerry Abrams (University of Virginia) in Jotwell.  Joslin’s paper, “Federalism and Family Status,” published in the Indiana Law Journal in 2015, is praised as a “carefully written” work that “traces the history of how the law has treated family status determinations and sets forth a framework, grounded in the federalism literature, on when family status should be determined on a state-by-state basis or as a federal matter.” 

Professor Joslin is a scholar in the field of family and relationship recognition, with a particular focus on same-sex and non-marital couples.
