The Legal Construction of Family Justice


  • Yongmei Xia



Family Justice; Family Law; Social Law; Human Rights Law.


In traditional society, family justice is mainly confirmed through ethics, which emphasizes "friendship" and "obedience" among family members. In modern society, family justice is more concerned with the basic rights of individual family members and opposes the unreasonable distribution of obligations, so family justice needs to be realized through law. The pursuit of family justice is not only the purpose of human beings, but also the purpose of law. The realization of family justice requires not only the regulation and guidance of family law, but also the support of social law and human rights law.
