HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Hofstra Law Review
, Hofstra Law School's flagship academic legal journal, will publish a special symposium issue this fall focused on collaborative law, a family law process that facilitates conflict resolution.
This special issue commemorates the release of the Uniform Collaborative Law Act (UCLA), which was drafted and approved, with Professor Andrew Schepard of Hofstra Law School serving as reporter, by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) at its 118th Annual Meeting in July 2009. A symposium on the subject was also held at Hofstra Law School in November 2009.
The symposium issue will contain articles that broach a wide range of topics related to the initial drafting process undertaken, as well as offer insight into conference discussions into the production and finalization of the UCLA by the NCCUSL. It also will explore proposed effects on partner relations in a situation of domestic violence and other legal, ethical and sociological issues arising in the context of collaborative law. The issue will also include the text of the UCLA adopted by the NCCUSL.
The contributors to the special symposium issue judges, distinguished academics from Hofstra Law School and other legal institutions, practitioners in the field and students of Hofstra Law School. For more information about the Hofstra Law Review
