Family Law

by CQUniversity

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This course surveys the law in Australia which regulates the key 'life-cycle' incidents of the marriage institution together with equivalent related and derivative relationships, plus associated consequential transactions. The course has a three part structure. The first part examines the socio-legal origins of current Australian family law and its constitutional and jurisdictional framework. The second part addresses the key substantive topics of: formation and dissolution of the marriage relationship and its socio-legal equivalents; the fiscal-legal relationship between parents and children; and associated fiscal and property matters. Finally, the third part encompasses both non-cooperative related party transacting (violence and abuse matters) and more positively , the enhanced ability of related parties to contract out of default standardised rules of (dis)engagement. 

On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
  1. Analyse, appraise and apply the main legislative schemes governing the formation and dissolution of marriage and other relations together with the regulation of associated institutions plus related and subordinate financial and property matters.
  2. Competently apply the relevant statutory provisions and case law to practical problems.
  3. Undertake and effectively communicate competent legal research of primary and secondary legal material on family law topics covered by this course.
  4. Describe the historical socio-legal antecedents of current Australian family law.
  5. Outline and discuss the policy shift in regulation supportive of self-help, contracting out and private arrangements in general.
