Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Law lecturer Jonathan Herring asks: what is a family; what makes someone a parent; and what rights should children have? He examines how laws have had to change in line with social changes such as the rise in divorce rates and arrival of surrogate mothers and explains how the family courts often struggle to keep up with change. Herring is a fellow in law at Exeter College, Oxford.
