The Cuba Field Study: Comparative Family Law provides an introduction to and comparative perspective on the Civil Law and Common Law legal systems, with a focus on how law regulates our intimate and family lives.
After a historical grounding in the contrasting legal systems, the course spotlights the treatment of issues of family formation, dissolution and relational rights within the common law and civil law traditions; it also examines how the Cuban legal system emerged and how it deals with the family.
