Call for Papers

This is a call for papers for a special edition of The Canadian Bar Review devoted to family law, which will be published in the fall of 2007. Though any topic related to family law will be considered, the Editors are particularly interested in receiving submissions on subjects like the following:

Economic issues
– Family trust
– Spousal support guidelines
– Tax implications of family breakdown
Cross-cultural issues
– The Boyd Report on Islamic tribunals
– Polygamy
Dispute resolution
– The emergence of collaborative law
– Applying game theory to family law negotiations
Issues related to children
– The challenge of reproductive technology
– Avoiding damaged children
– The rights of mature minors

It is hoped that both academic and practitioner perspectives will be reflected in the volume.

Papers should be no longer than 10,000 words in order to permit the inclusion of a wide variety of topics. The deadline for the submission of papers is June 15, 2007.

Authors who are intending to submit papers are asked to provide the Editors with an abstract or outline of the intended topic by February 15, 2007.

Statements of intent and final submissions should be sent in electronic form to the Editor, Professor Beth Bilson, at beth.bilson@usask.ca.
