This article describes the Family Law Education Reform (FLER) Project Report and provides recommendations as to how a family law professor should select a course textbook. I note that the FLER Report focuses on the importance of new lawyers being sensitive to gender, race, and class and discuss how a textbook focusing on policy, practice problems, and collaborative skills will satisfy the FLER project’s recommendations.
