Regional conferences North American Regional Conference 2013

Brooklyn Law School, New York

6/06/2013 – 8/06/2013

The 2013 North American Regional Conference of the ISFL was held on June 6-8 at Brooklyn Law School in New York.  The theme was Fostering Family Harmony:  Principles and Practices. The call for papers noted: “Whether families are intact or separated, family harmony is strongly associated with private and public benefits.   Both children and adult partners experience health, wealth, and happiness benefits from family harmony.  These benefits, and the higher likelihood of intrafamilial support that go with them, produce public gains as well.  The conference sought to explore what legal principles, practices, and organizational structures can best promote family harmony. The conference convenor was Prof. Marsha Garrison.
