This is an exciting opportunity to take part in a PhD research project at the University of Exeter, England which looks at financial provision on relationship breakdown for married couples, unmarried couples and civil partners.

Currently, the family, its forms, and traditional family practices are undergoing change in British society and these changes are in turn affecting the development of family law, particularly when relationships break down. As part of this research, this project investigates options for legal reform on financial provision for when married couples, civil partnerships, and unmarried couples split up in England and Wales, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia. Therefore, this project looks at how the law should go about taking considerations of the domestic and financial arrangements within couples of different styles when it decides how to divide assets.

This project seeks legal practitioners in family law (solicitors, barristers and judges) in any of these jurisdictions to take part in a telephone interview that would last between 30 and 45 minutes. This project offers you a chance to provide invaluable insight into your individual opinions of how well you think the legal system values domestic contributions, if at all, when considering how to divide assets in each of the various relationship forms on relationship breakdown.
