Family Law Quarterly
The Family Law Quarterly (FLQ) is a scholarly journal published by the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association, in collaboration with New York Law School.
Articles are written by academics and practitioners and focus on important and timely legal issues in family law. The journal includes an editorial board of practitioners and scholars, as well as a student editorial board. Professor Lisa Grumet, Director of NYLS’s Diane Abbey Law Institute for Children and Families, serves as Faculty Editor.
Day Division and Evening Division students are eligible for the FLQ co-curricular program in their 2L, 3L, and/or 4L years. Through the program, students develop their knowledge of family law while honing their editing, research, writing, and citation skills.
There are two ways for students to participate:
- Students who serve as junior editors edit and source-check articles written by family law practitioners and scholars, research and update charts that survey state family law-related statutes, and research and write summaries of current family law decisions and/or family law-related legal scholarship.
- Students who serve as members of FLQ’s executive board, in addition to the editorial duties listed above, help oversee the editorial process. Executive board roles include a student Editor in Chief and other managerial positions.
