The ‘Family & Law’ forum

The Family & Law forum is the first online open access forum in the area of family and law in Belgium and the Netherlands. This forum is a common Belgian-Dutch initiative and was made possible by the NWO’s incentive fund for open access journals.

The forum contains academic articles concerning personal, family and youth law. Through this, the exchange of knowledge and debate between theory and practice in Belgium and the Netherlands will be furthered. Viewing, downloading and printing the contributions from this forum is free (open access). The editors make use of the knowledge of Boom Legal Publishers.

The articles and academic notes that are placed in the Family & Law forum undergo a double blind peer review procedure.

The editors, advisory board and permanent staff include prominent academics from legal and social science disciplines from Belgium and the Netherlands. Through this, the quality of the new initiative is guaranteed.
