A unique and comprehensive collection of sources including published appellate cases and law review articles but also selections from the fields of sociology, psychology, and anthropology. Samples of current legislation, Congressional memoranda, restraining order forms, and articles from the popular press, including newsletters and brochures from hard-to-obtain sources are included. Ms. Lemon has taught this course since 1988 and has written many pioneering pieces of legislation in this area. The materials are comprehensive in examining different points of view on the subject of domestic violence law. They help the student explore the tension between theory and practice, a critical point in teaching this subject. A historical perspective is given so that students can see both the ways the laws have changed over the past century and also the ways they have not changed. This reader lends itself to discussions of the role of the attorney in crafting the law, not simply following it.

Review:

A unique and comprehensive collection of domestic violence law sources including published appellate cases and law review articles, but also selections from the fields of sociology,psychology and anthropology. Samples of current legislation, Congressional memoranda, restraining order forms and articles from the popular press, including newsletters and brochures from hard-to-obtain sources are included. Nancy Lemon has taught this course for almost ten years and has written many pioneering pieces of legislation in this area. The materials are comprehensive in examining different points of view on the subject of domestic violence and law. They help the student explore the tension between theory and practice, a critical point in teaching this subject. An historical perspective is given so that students can see both the ways the laws have changed over the last century and also the ways they have not changed. Domestic Violence Law lends itself to discussions of the role of the attorney in crafting the law, not simply following it. Designed principally for law students, Domestic Violence Law has much of value for women's rights and battered women advocates, and any interested non-specialist general reader as well. -- Midwest Book Review
