Bringing together an international range of academics,Gender, Sexualities and Lawprovides a comprehensive interrogation of the range of contemporary issues ' both topical and controversial ' raised by the gendered character of law, legal discourse and institutions. The gendering of law, persons and the legal profession, along with the gender bias of legal outcomes, has been a fractious, but fertile, focus of reflection. It has, moreover, been an important site of political struggle. This collection of essays offers an unrivalled examination of its various contemporary dimensions, focusing on: issues of theory and representation; violence, both national and international; reproduction and parenting; and partnership, sexuality, marriage and the family.Gender, Sexualities and Lawwill be invaluable for all those engaged in research and study of the law (and related fields) as a form of gendered power.

Jackie Jones, Anna Grear and Rachel Anne Fenton are based at the University of Western England; Kim Stevenson teaches at the University of Plymouth.
