Thursday 10 & Friday 11 March 2022

Crown Promenade Melbourne and Online

.   .

Family law practice is constantly evolving and the challenges facing practitioners continue to grow. With significant reforms being made to the Family Court, it has never been more important for family lawyers to be across this complex and dynamic landscape. Television Education Network’s 2022 conference examines some of the major themes which have dominated the family law landscape over the last twelve months, including income and inheritances in property settlements, negotiating relocation arrangements, and navigating the child support maze.

The conference also includes a bonus set of 3 on-demand video webinars covering each of the compulsory subjects so most practitioners can earn their 10 CPD units for this CPD year (subject to your professional body rules).

This year’s conference has 2 registration options – you can attend the conference in Melbourne in person, or attend it live online.
