Paternity: Bargaining or Biology?

In Bargaining or Biology? The History and Future of Paternity Law and Parental Status, Katharine K.

She suggests that reliance on contract theory can reconcile much of the case law, constitutional doctrine, and contemporary mores. Katharine K. Baker, Bargaining or Biology?
