Blogs About New Family Law Issues

Marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption—the central topics of family law have been around for a long time. But recent decades have put a new spin on these topics as technology develops ways of becoming parents (egg donation, in vitro fertilization, etc.) and people explores different family structures (same-sex partners, blended families).

This year's bill in the California legislature that would have made it possible for a child to have more than two legal parents (it was vetoed by Gov. Brown) is too recent to be in texts and treatises—or even law reviews—but you can find it discussed in blogs (e.g., here and here).

Justia lists over 200 family law blogs here. Health law blogs are listed here. Most of them are by practitioners.

Here is a selective list of blogs from law professors and advocacy groups that might discuss family law and reproductive technology:
