Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course examines legal issues that arise from the government#s regulation of the family. It focuses on the definition, creation, and dissolution of the family. Topics covered include who may marry, divorce, property distribution, child custody, and assisted reproductive technology. Among the themes we will explore are the tension between the need for fixed, predictable rules and the need for flexibility to accommodate increasingly diverse family forms; the significance of changing gender roles within marriage and within society as a whole; and the appropriate balance between the judicial and legislative branches in resolving public policy issues. Students are required to complete several credit/fail assignments, including participation in a simulated client intake and in a simulated divorce negotiation, during the course of the semester. Grades will be based primarily on performance on an in-class open book final exam, but performance on the assignments and in-class discussion may also be taken into consideration.
