About the Family Law Conference
In 2016-2017 there were over 20,000 applications filed in the Family Court. Almost 70% of those cases were consent order applications. Currently, there is a comprehensive review of the Family Law system, with recommendations being passed down in 2019. With all this in mind, as a legal practitioner, how are you staying informed about developments in the Family Court? How are you meeting your CLE and CPD requirements?
Join Salvos Legal Humanitarian for the annual Queensland Humanitarian and Family Law Conference on Saturday 17th of February. There will be discussions on the Family Law Act, parenting matters, court practice and procedures and much more on this relevant topic. Who better to hear from than a member of the Bench? Earn CLE and CPD points as you listen to significant talks.
Justice Jenny Hogan (Family Court of Australia) – “What, Why and How”: the essentials for preparation and presentation in proceedings under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth).
Justice Michael Baumann (Family Court of Australia) – How to survive as a Family Lawyer.
Judge Leanne Turner (Federal Circuit Court of Australia) – “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” – how to obtain instructions, gather evidence and what to watch out for when telling your client’s side of the story”.
Who should attend?
We encourage solicitors and barristers practicing in these areas of law to attend this event, furthermore law students or gradudates with an interest in these practice areas.
* CLE and CPD schemes are based upon self-assessment of an educational activity. In order to count an educational activity towards mandatory CLE and CPD requirements a legal practitioner must determine for themselves that the activity extends their knowledge and skills in areas relevant to their practise or professional development.
