The last 12 months have shaped up to be the most challenging year for family lawyers and their clients. Property settlement values are in a state of flux, courts delays have lengthened, and parenting disputes are getting uglier. This year’s program covers a range of important and topical issues for family lawyers, including the impact of COVID-19 on property settlements, breaches of Family Court orders, and navigating spousal maintenance.

The conference also includes a presentation on each of the compulsory subjects so most practitioners can earn their 10 CPD units subject to your professional body rules.
