Linda D. Elrod & Robert G. Spector

Family Law in the Fifty States 2010-2011: Case Digests
This year's summary of family-law cases covers approximately the period of August 1, 2010, through August 1, 2011. The case digests are presented in a topical outline framework and alphabetized by state within each topic heading. The summary does not include every case from every jurisdiction but highlights some of the more important ones. The digests are a result of reports submitted in each state by reporters and supplemented by Washburn Law School student staff.

Annual Survey of Periodical Literature
The Annual Review of Periodical Literature provides a sampling of law review articles published between November 1, 2010, and October 31, 2011. The survey highlights the variety and depth of family law scholarship produced during the year and calls attention to currently debated "hot topics." Readers are encouraged to read articles of interest in their entirety because the summaries included in the survey are necessarily abbreviated.
Family Law and Its Application to the Global Community
The International Survey of Family Law 2011 Edition (Bill Adkins, ed.)
Book Review by David S. Rosettenstein
The International Society of Family Law (ISFL) annually publishes The International Survey of Family Law. This eleventh edition offers twenty-three chapters, contributed by twenty-seven authors or institutions in countries around the world. The book examines how family law is practiced in different jurisdictions and, in addition, as a result of global mobility and political fragmentation and reconstruction how it might affect practice in the U.S. and in the international cases of American practitioners.
