  • Great topics, well organised and a great range of speakers.The gender equality of the speakers was terrific and should be commended by the organisers.

  • Excellent content - much more relevant to my practice than family law intensives run by Family Law Section I usually attend.

  • The content was excellent, practical, useful in very day practice.No 'filler' type presentations.Very pleased with content.
