How is your family law practice faring in these new times? Every family law practitioner is adjusting to the "new normal" and our presenters can help you find a path forward. You have clients who are experiencing stressful times themselves which is reflected in the issues they present to you: managing high conflict personalities, dealing with spousal support and property disputes and a myriad of other issues, both expected and unexpected. The 14th Family Law Summit helps you cope. We offer an opportunity to hear about a diverse range of topics that have been curated to meet the needs of family law practitioners today.

  • ​Hear about reforms to the parenting provisions of the Divorce Act 
  • Learn practical approaches to better communicate with your clients in a virtual environment
  • Be aware of the advantages and drawbacks of technology within family law practice
