Helen Colby (IU Kelley Business) & Margaret Ryznar (IU McKinney Law) have recently posted to SSRN their article An Empirical Study of Family Law Understanding, University of Louisville Law Review (forthcoming). Here is the abstract:
This Article offers empirical data on the extent of family law understanding among Americans when it comes to creditors’ rights. Our data, composed of surveys, reveal that people’s perceptions of these rights do not change across states despite different legal regimes, and that people who are divorced have no better knowledge than those who have never been divorced. These original findings have important implications for law and policymakers.
