Tue 20 March | 4:00PM - 6:00PM | Auckland CBD venue to be confirmed

Synopsis

The current review of the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 is a good time to reflect on the practise of family law as a whole. How can we ensure best practise and maintain high standards? What can we do to improve camaraderie and co-operation as well as ensure the best outcome for our clients?

This seminar is an opportunity to engage in this discussion with your colleagues.

Learning Outcomes

  • Become more familiar with the legal, professional and ethical roles and responsibilities of family lawyers both in their practice and in presenting before the court.
  • Understand better how to balance your obligations to your client with the effects on children and ongoing family dynamics.
  • Learn how to steer clients (and their lawyers) towards resolution outside the courtroom through counselling and therapy, forming private agreements, mediation, arbitration and collaborative practice.

Who should attend?

This seminar is relevant to all lawyers who practise family law.
