Fordham Law

Comparative Family Law: US & India (by permission)

This five-credit, full-year seminar is a capstone course for students with a background in juvenile and family law or women’s rights.  The seminar is intended to provide students with an in-depth opportunity to tie together the materials they have studied in various courses relating to juvenile and family law and women’s rights and to develop this understanding in a global context.  The seminar will address issues of child abuse, sex trafficking, and domestic violence.  During fall semester, students will meet once a week in a seminar format to learn about these issues in the United States and India.  Students will also develop a proposal for an individual research paper.  Over winter break Professor Huntington and enrolled students will travel to India to spend time at the National Law School of India University and visit Indian non-governmental organizations working on these issues.  Students will have time to conduct research on their individual topics.  During spring semester, students will meet individually with Professor Huntington as they complete their research papers.
