p. 1098. Where next for family law?
- Jonathan Herring
‘Where next for family law?’ turns towards the future for family law as family life continues to go through many changes. The law is struggling to keep up with these changes. There are three key battlegrounds predicted to emerge as the law seeks to find an appropriate response to the realities of family life in the current century. These relate to individual versus relational values, gender and family life, and society and family law. Will there be an end to family life in the future? It is unlikely. The traditional family structure may be less prevalent but there will always be a need for intimate relationships and the creation and raising of children.
