Family Court Review (FCR) is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal published under the auspices of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC). Family Court Review is an international, interdisciplinary family law journal -- a forum for the exchange of ideas, programs, research, legislation, case law and reforms. The journal's editorial staff, under the direction of Faculty Editor-in-Chief Andrew Schepard, is based at the Law School. Its fundamental premise is that productive discussion of family law is facilitated by a dialogue between the judiciary, lawyers, mediators, mental health and social services communities. AFCC is an interdisciplinary, international association of judges, counselors, evaluators, mediators, attorneys and others concerned with the constructive resolution of family conflict.
At the end of each year, students are selected as members of the editorial staff of Family Court Review through a writing competition conducted in cooperation with the Hofstra Law Journals. Special consideration is given to students who are seriously interested in family law and family dispute resolution.
