“Focusing its energies on issues involving same sex couples and parents, married or not, with all of the complexities that family lawyers face as our society continues to struggle with issues of enormous significance in this area of our practices. The Academy has been a leader in the effort to enable same sex couples to enjoy all of the privileges of heterosexual couples and it is timely for us to now have a Committee that focuses on those issues, which assuredly will have an impact on all of us and our clients”
