  • Details

    • Offers a broad overview of how both national and international laws affect children and childhood
    • The latest volume in the established Current Legal Issues series, which brings together leading scholars from around the world to explore the interactions between legal thought and other disciplines
    • Topics include cyber bullying, children's human rights, childhood in conflict-stricken areas, foster care, and parental discipline

    Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems (now available in journal format), is based upon an annual colloquium held at Univesity College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. 
    Law and Childhood Studies, the fourteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the state of law and childhood studies scholarship today. Focussing on the inter-connections between the two disciplines, it addresses the key issues informing current debates.

    Readership: Academics and researchers interested in the interaction between law and childhood studies. Public officials working with children and family issues.
