Category:JP Boyd on Family Law Contributors

JP Boyd on Family Law is a collaborative work led by John-Paul Boyd and Megan Ellis QC. They are joined by a stellar roster of subject editors (experienced senior family law lawyers and junior lawyers committed to delivering in-depth, pragmatic family law information for the public). The editorial structure of JP Boyd on Family Law is unique in its use of editorial pairs for most chapter contents. In past editions, editors emeriti (members of the judiciary and legal academia), were asked to provide general overview and guidance. Subject editors are asked to serve for a period of one or two years.

  • Subject Editors tend to work in pairs to ensure a specific chapter is up-to-date. Cross-mentorship is encouraged between subject editors, as it is generally the case that the subject editor who is more junior will have a greater comfort with the technological aspects of updating content on the wiki, while senior calls who are subject editors will have more experience and knowledge about the law.
  • Senior Subject Editors are subject editors with substantial experience (over ten years) in family law.
  • Editors emeriti (editor emeritus singular) were judges, masters and law professors with accounts and profiles on Clicklaw Wikibooks, but who were not assigned specific chapters. They were encouraged to review content overall, make suggestions to subject editors about changes to chapters, and make other recommendations to site administrators as they see fit. The project no longer has this category of editors.
