Religious Footprints in Secular Sand: the Imprint of Religious Culture in Civil Law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this publication is to examine the imprint of the religious culture within two seminal cases, and to explore what this might mean for the way that we approach these precedents for the purpose of legal analysis and teaching. One ruling is the iconic Donghue v Stevenson, and the other is the leading Family Law case of Hyde v Hyde.
