    Getting tough on mothers: regulating contact and residence.Julie Wallbank - 2007 - Feminist Legal Studies 15 (2):189-222.
    This article critically examines the relationship between shared residence and contact after the breakdown of the parents’ relationship. It examines the background to the government’s main emphasis on methods of monitoring, facilitating and enforcing contact as the most efficacious method of proceeding in respect of the law reform agenda, focussing particularly on the potential impact of punitive enforcement measures on primary carers, usually mothers. The article sets the discussion within its wider cultural context in respect of fathers’ rights claims that (...)

    Returning the subject to the subject of women's poverty: An essay on the importance of subjectivity for the feminist research project.Julie Wallbank - 1995 - Feminist Legal Studies 3 (2):207-221.
    In this piece I have stated my case for the importance of the inclusion of subjectivity in the study of women's poverty. The relevance of the ideas discussed herein is not confined to this one research area, for the project of incorporation is crucial to any field of research which has a pertinence to the practical realities of women's lives. I have noted how through talking and prioritising principles we run the danger of evacuating the subject, for principles cannot take (...)
