All books in this flagship series contain carefully selected substantial extracts from key cases, legislation, and academic debate, providing able students with a stand-alone resource. This chapter examines how the status of ‘legal parenthood’ is acquired under English law. It considers different concepts of parenthood and possible approaches to determining legal parenthood; the current legal framework for identifying a child's legal parents where a child is conceived through natural procreation; the problems and challenges raised by the use of assisted reproduction techniques and surrogacy; and adoption, a unique means of acquiring the legal status of parenthood under English law.
