Martin E. Shucart Electronic Library

The Martin E. Shucart Electronic Library is a compendium of resources relating to family law.
"Marty" was a member of the executive committee of the Los Angeles County Bar Family Law Section. He was a fine family lawyer and one of the champions of using new technology in the practice of law. He hosted one of the first online family law discussion groups — a precursor to our popular "listserve."
