1. Family law has undergone substantial revision in the direction of equality, gender neutrality, and “no-fault”. While positive in principle, significant controversy and debate exists among scholars in family law, leading some commentators to argue that the laws are failing as they are even less capable of providing consistent, workable, and fair resolution to family law issues. Do you agree? (Include reference to the group presentations in your answer)
2. Family law remained relatively consistent from 1600 to 1850, after which there was a period of significant change to the laws from 1850-1930. While there are a number of factors that led to these changes/reforms, it could be argued that changes to family function, structure, and ideology was the most important factor. Discuss.
3. Historically, Canadian legislators opposed the concept of divorce until 1968, such that Canada’s divorce laws were limited and inaccessible. Rather than create a uniform and accessible national divorce law, Canadian legislators implemented a number of other laws and measures to deal with issues of marital dysfunction or breakdown (in family, civil, and criminal law). Discuss.
