Assistant Professor Alison Lefkovitz Contributes to New Website on Child Custody Issues

NEWARK, Oct 7 2014

Professor Alison Lefkovitz

Alison Lefkovitz, assistant professor of history, recently wrote a framing essay for the newly launched Child Custody Project website. The site explores child custody issues nationwide within a broad historical and legal context with the goal of providing an impartial, interdisciplinary resource for scholars, practitioners and the public at large.

The framing essays are central to the site, authored by leading scholars and practitioners on key issues in the complex field of child custody. Essays address topics such as the history of child custody in Virginia, the definition of family and child custody issues, child custody in the media, alternative dispute resolution, and the “best interests of the child” standard.
