About the Book

The Book is inspired and is dedicated to the fond memory of Late. Dr. Carmo D’Souza, former faculty at the V. M. Salgaocar College of Law, Goa. Dr. Carmo’s contribution to the study of Goa Laws and Comparative Laws is immense.

Throughout his teaching career and post retirement, he has carried out extensive research in relation to laws with specific reference to its application to the State of Goa. He published his valuable research in the form of several books. His major contribution to Family Law is the book, “Civil Law Studies: India Perspective” which was published by the Cambridge Publishers.

Dr. Carmo has always been of the opinion that there is a need to extensively research the area of Family Law, towards which he has been relentlessly striving. Carrying forward his mission, the V.M.Salgaocar College of Law, Goa, therefore proposes this publication.
