Great Resources: HeinOnline – International Journal of the Jurisprudence of the Family

This forty-second installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

heinonline-logoAffiliated with the International Academy for the Study of the Jurisprudence of the Family, the International Journal of the Jurisprudence of the Family (IJJF) is a peer-reviewed academic journal established to foster the publication of scholarly works relating to the foundations of family life and family law and to promote a deeper understanding of the principles upon which families are based and the governmental policies that affect family life.

The IJJF is a recent addition to the available resources regarding the jurisprudence of the family, having been first published in the summer of 2011.  The first volume was primarily based on the papers presented at the 2010 Jurisprudence of the Family Symposium presented by the International Academy for the Study of the Jurisprudence of the Family, and the IJJF has since continued to publish one volume annually, each including contributions by leading scholars from all over the world.  The contributing authors represent a wide variety of cultures, legal systems, religions, and schools of jurisprudence.

While this is a relatively new resource, it may provide very valuable insights and information for researchers interested in family law and jurisprudence, especially as it relates to international and comparative law.
