Family Law: Introduction
This guide is selective and attempts to provide resources on the topic of family law. It is not comprehensive in scope or intended to be a catchall source, but rather to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. At its core, the guide attempts to lead the researcher to up-to-date items held by the Western Michigan University-Cooley Law School libraries. Additionally, the guide is tilted towards Michigan sources on the topic while other state specific guides have been omitted. The annotations provide brief descriptions and do not purport to serve as critiques or endorsements of the titles’ contents or authority.
The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline.
In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.
And please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance.
