Professor Nicole LaViolette (’96) and National Program graduate Julie Audet (’96) have published a new book on the fundamentals of family law in Canada entitled L'essentiel du droit de la famille dans les provinces et territoires de common law au Canada (Éditions Yvon Blais).
The book presents a comprehensive picture of all of the rights and obligations related to family ties in Canadian common law jurisdictions. The authors explore major themes in family law, including constitutional framework, marriage and divorce, division of family property, domestic contracts and child custody. The book also presents specific cases in Ontario, Manitoba and New Brunswick, where Francophones living in the minority have rights to legal services in French.
