Bibliographical note

This volume of the Family in Law Review is the product of two international
conferences in the field of family law which took place in Israel. The first, at Bar
Ilan University in 2008,1
was on Marriage and Constitution. The second was a
Regional Conference of the International Society of Family Law (ISFL) on Family
Law in a Multicultural Environment; Civil and Religious Law in Family Matters2
which took place in 2009 at the Center for the Rights of the Child and the Family at
Sha'arei Mishpat Law College and Bar Ilan University.
The Conference on Marriage and Constitution dealt with the fascinating
interface between marriage law and constitutional law. The participants in the
conference included prominent researchers in the fields of family law and
constitutional law. The conference combined historical research, comparative
aspects (the main legal systems which were discussed were the USA, the EU,
England, Germany, Israel and Pakistan) and normative constitutional discourse.
