What is the Family of Law? - Alan Brown
On this episode, Dr Alan Brown talks to Professor Jane Mair (Professor of Private Law) about the recent publication of his monograph ‘What is the Family of Law?: The Influence of the Nuclear Family’. They discuss the book’s delineation of the shifting legal definition of family and the privileging in law of an image of the nuclear family underpinned by heteronormative ideology, before asking what alternative models of family may be possible, or necessary, following societal shifts and legal reforms.
