Boyle Signs Contract with Walters Kluwer, Publishes Article in IJCAM, and Places Book Review in IJCAM

Professor Robin Boyle has signed a publishing contract with Wolters Kluwer to provide its forthcoming segment on contract drafting questions for its online series called Connected Quizzing.  Connected Quizzing is a formative assessment tool for law students and professors available on CasebookConnect.com, covering a wide range of law school topics.  Contract Drafting will be a new topic for the series.
BoyleProfessor Boyle’s article, Preventing Predatory Alienation by High-Control Groups:  The Application of Human Trafficking Laws to Groups Popularly Known as ‘Cults,’ and Proposed Changes to Laws Regarding Federal Immigration, State Child Marriage, & Undue Influence, was accepted for publication in the upcoming inaugural issue of the International Journal of Coercion, Abuse, and Manipulation (IJCAM) (Summer 2020) (peer-reviewed).  The paper reflects feedback she’s received from presenting on topics of human trafficking and the Nxivm case at an International Cultic Studies Conference in Manchester, UK, last summer; she also incorporated valuable feedback from her presentation on undue influence at a think tank last Fall – Harvard Medical School, Program in Psychiatry & the Law.

In addition, Professor Boyle’s book review for a nonfiction book titled, Scarred: The True Story of How I Escaped NXIVM the Cult that Bound My Life, Author: Sarah Edmondson, is slated for publication also in IJCAM’s inaugural issue.
