Family Court Advocacy Problems – and How to Fix Them

On Demand
This live broadcast from Thursday, May 21st has concluded. Register below to access the on demand recording.

Sometimes both lawyers and judges forget that Family Court proceedings are still trials  and that the same principles of advocacy, goals of persuasion and rules of evidence apply in Family Court as in any other court. Join our panel of two experienced family court judges and a family court practitioner for a presentation on what problems they see on a regular basis and how to fix those problems  or avoid them altogether. After the presentation there will be time for questions and discussion between the panel and viewers.
