Prof. Anne SCULLY-JOHNSON has published a book chapter “Desperately Seeking Legislative Reform” in the International Survey of Family Law 2021

Prof. Anne SCULLY-JOHNSON‘s chapter “Desperately Seeking Legislative Reform” in the International Society of Family Law‘s annual publication, the International Survey of Family Law, examining the current state of family law in Hong Kong and the urgent need for legislative reform, has just been published by Intersentia.

The aim of the Survey is to bring together reliable and clearly structured insights into the latest and most notable developments in family law from all around the globe. Chapters are prepared by an international team of selected experts in the field, usually covering 20 or more jurisdictions in each edition. 

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 edition of the Survey traces developments from around the world, brought about through international, national and local bodies. The chapters analyse civil and common law systems, as well as decisions of the United Nations and the European Union courts. Some chapters focus on the beginnings of families, including marriage, adoption and assisted reproduction, while others deal with their dissolution or the effects (and after effects) of aging. Once again, the authors include highly regarded academics, judges and practitioners.
