This issue of Family Law Quarterly features articles about intimate partner violence and the many ways it affects people and families. Intimate partner violence obviously takes a great toll on individuals and families, but it also affects entire communities. Academic institutions, the corporate world, religious congregations, Native American reservations—no community is immune to the devastating impacts, which means that every community can also be part of the solution. As you will see, our articles in this issue explore the significant harms imposed by intimate partner violence, as well as how the justice system can be a part of the restorative process and help mitigate future harm.
