Professor Elizabeth Sheehy was featured in an excellent article Family Court’s handling of violence under scrutiny by Teuila Fuatai 

The article was about Sheehy’s talk as part of a panel on family law at the University of Auckland.  Lawyer Catriona MacLennan and Deborah MacKenzie of the Backbone Collective also spoke on the panel. Sheehy questioned the use of “parental alienation” in family court and the minimisation of domestic violence that often results from it.
