    Beyond Couples: Burden V United Kingdom 47 EHRR 38; [2008] 2 FLR 787; Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, 29 April 2008.Rosemary Auchmuty - 2009 - Feminist Legal Studies 17 (2):205-218.
    Two elderly sisters who lived together complained of discrimination on the ground that, when one of them died, the other would face a heavy inheritance tax bill, unlike the survivor of a marriage or civil partnership who enjoys a “spousal exemption” under the Inheritance Tax Act 1984. They lost in both the lower chamber of the European Court of Human Rights and on appeal to the Grand Chamber. At first instance, discrimination was found but held to be proportionate and justifiable; (...)

    Law and the Power of Feminism: How Marriage Lost its Power to Oppress Women.Rosemary Auchmuty - 2012 - Feminist Legal Studies 20 (2):71-87.
    In Feminism and the Power of Law Carol Smart argued that feminists should use non-legal strategies rather than looking to law to bring about women’s liberation. This article seeks to demonstrate that, as far as marriage is concerned, she was right. Statistics and contemporary commentary show how marriage, once the ultimate and only acceptable status for women, has declined in social significance to such an extent that today it is a mere lifestyle choice. This is due to many factors, including (...)

    When Equality Is Not Equity:Homosexual Inclusion in Undue Influence Law. [REVIEW]Rosemary Auchmuty - 2003 - Feminist Legal Studies 11 (2):163-190.
    In Barclay's Bank v. O'Brien(1993) the House of Lords extended the undue influence rules to heterosexual and homosexual cohabitees, a move that was widely welcomed and has been endorsed in Royal Bank of Scotland v. Etridge (No. 2) (2001). The paper argues that the extension to homosexual couples is inappropriate, since undue influence is largely a problem of heterosexuality. It is not accidental that there have been no reported cases of undue influence between lesbian or gay partners, not because abuses (...)

    ‘We Exist, but Who Are We?’ Feminism and the Power of Sociological Law. [REVIEW]Rosemary Auchmuty & Karin Van Marle - 2012 - Feminist Legal Studies 20 (2):65-69.
    In this article the author revisits Carol Smart’s 1989 publication Feminism and the power of law. She engages with Smart’s main claims by way of a number of other thinkers. Following Marianne Constable’s description of contemporary American legal thought as socio-legal, the author tentatively considers if it could be argued that some strains in contemporary legal feminism that adopted a sociological method resulted in a similar absence of justice that concerns Constable. Smart’s caution against the development of a feminist jurisprudence (...)
