Pennsylvania Family Law

PBI Publications

In conjunction with its continuing legal education courses, the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) produces many books each year covering various family law topics. Some of these concentrate on more specific or unusual areas of the law. When a researcher has difficulty finding an answer in the manuals or form books, it is a good idea to turn to a PBI publication for guidance.

The publications listed below are a sampling of the materials on Pennsylvania Family Law available to Jenkins' members. New PBI publications are being added to our collection continuously. We also keep older years in our Historic Collection for archival purposes. Please check the Jenkins' catalog for a more up-to-date listing. To limit your search results to only PBI materials, select Modify Search and enter Pennsylvania Bar Institute in the Publisher field.

Please note that not all PBI titles are published each year. Please remember to update with primary sources.
