About the AAML Journal

The Journal of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) is a specialty journal devoted to the practice of National and International Family Law.

AAML publishes the Journal semiannually (in the Fall and Spring). The University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Law faculty serve as advisors to the AAML Journal Board and generate an annotated bibliography supporting practice and research on a specialized topic, and students edit and author articles.

The articles focus on cutting edge developments in law and policy, improvement in the delivery of services through family justice courts, and best practices which secure the rights and needs of children and families.
