Duquesne Law Review


Pennsylvania's family court system is fragmented into various specialty courts. Other states have begun to reexamine the effectiveness of such a system and, using an economic framework, have taken steps to create unified family courts that better address the issues facing modern families and society. The author analyzes the effectiveness of such undertakings, discusses the underlying theories, and proposes that Pennsylvania implement a unified family court system by statute.
