Family Law Institute for judges and lawyers

January 17, 2014

This one is for all of our Network faithful who are lawyers and judges. We know that you have a most difficult job and are thrilled to make you aware of an upcoming Institute designed just for you.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges is pleased to offer the  Family Law Institute for Judges and Lawyers, scheduled March 2-5, 2014 in Monterey, Calif., which will feature topics as wide ranging as last year, with the return of Professor Joe Hoffman, who will once again provide an update us on U.S. Supreme Court activity. In addition, there will be plenary sessions on the effects of psychotropic medications in children and adults, e-discovery and ethics, and how to stay happy and productive.

The Institute will include faculty from organizations such as  The National Judicial College, the  American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the  American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys, and others who will be providing stellar faculty. In addition, the Institute will benefit from the participation of the Military Child Education Coalition, a nonprofit organization from Ft. Hood, Texas serving military families, who will discuss issues of children in the military. 

The session lineup includes such topics as child sexual abuse, cyberstalking, interviewing children, child toxic stress in high-conflict divorce, and parentage in the test tube era. The topics of marriage and divorce in a post-DOMA world, trauma-informed courts, virtual contact visitation plans, and judicial health and wellness will also be offered. In all, the offerings will be state of the art and thought provoking, and the conference organizers anticipate a most lively conference.
