Working While Mothering During The Pandemic And Beyond, Nicole Buonocore Porter Aug 2021

Working While Mothering During The Pandemic And Beyond, Nicole Buonocore Porter

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

Although combining work and family has never been easy for women, working while mothering during the pandemic was close to impossible. When COVID-19 caused most workplaces to shut down, many women were laid off. But many women were forced to work from home alongside their children, who could not attend daycare or school. Mothers tried valiantly to combine a full day’s work on top of caring for young children and helping school-aged children with remote school. But many found this balance difficult, leading to women’s lowest workforce participation rate in over forty years. And even women who did ...

When Food Is A Weapon: Parental Liability For Food Allergy Bullying, D'Andra Millsap Shu

Marquette Law Review

Food allergies in children are rising at an alarming pace. Increasingly, these children face an added threat: bullies targeting them because of their allergies.

It explores the legal system’s failure to adequately address the problem of food allergy bullying and makes the case for focusing on the potential tort liability of the bully’s parents. Parents who become aware of their child’s bullying behavior and fail to take adequate steps ...

Notre Dame Journal of International & Comparative Law

This Article focuses on parental leave in the United States, which mostly relies on the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and compares it to parental leave policies in other countries, particularly Sweden. While the FMLA has many drawbacks, Sweden and other countries have robust and progressive leave plans that the United States should look to in amending the FMLA or adopting a new parental leave policy.


Babies Aren't U.S., Zachary J. Devlin Aug 2017

Babies Aren't U.S., Zachary J. Devlin

University of Massachusetts Law Review

Parental leave has been an on-going issue in the political process, most recently during this presidential election. This is because upon the birth or adoption of a child, many in the United States cannot afford to take time off from work to care for and integrate children into their families. This is especially true for the contemporary family. The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) was Congress’s attempt to strike equilibrium between employment and family and medical needs. The FMLA put legal emphasis on the family unit in an effort to neutralize gender discrimination while promoting gender ...

Parental Alienation Syndrome: Fact Or Fiction? The Problem With Its Use In Child Custody Cases, Holly Smith Feb 2016

Parental Alienation Syndrome: Fact Or Fiction? The Problem With Its Use In Child Custody Cases, Holly Smith

University of Massachusetts Law Review

Parental alienation syndrome is an alleged disorder that was first coined by Dr. Richard Gardner in 1985. Dr. Gardner defined this alleged syndrome as one that arises primarily in the context of child-custody disputes and involves a child’s unjustified denigration against a parent. Although more than thirty years have passed since parental alienation syndrome was first introduced by Dr. Gardner, it is yet to be recognized or accepted in the medical community. Moreover, there are also legitimate questions concerning the alleged syndrome’s admissibility and reliability as evidence in family law proceedings, and the negative effects parental alienation syndrome ...

Relevance And Fairness: Protecting The Rights Of Domestic-Violence Victims And Left-Behind Fathers Under The Hague Convention On International Child Abduction, Noah L. Browne Feb 2011

Relevance And Fairness: Protecting The Rights Of Domestic-Violence Victims And Left-Behind Fathers Under The Hague Convention On International Child Abduction, Noah L. Browne

Duke Law Journal

Thirty years ago, the international community took a hard line against international parental kidnapping. The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction allows parental child abduction only in rare circumstances, such as when returning the child would create a "grave risk" of harm. Recently, mothers who have abducted their children when fleeing domestic violence have successfully pled this grave-risk exception, demonstrating the Convention's relevance to the realities of domestic violence. This Note welcomes that development, but argues that the rights of left-behind parents, who increasingly are fathers, must also be taken into account. Left-behind fathers, whether ...
