The University of Richmond School of Law and Virginia CLE have combined their resources to provide a national symposium on family law that will bring together family law attorneys, GALs for children, judges, professors, and mental health experts from across the country.
Here are a few of the reasons you will want to attend this Symposium:
• Unique opportunity to learn, discuss, and debate the law, the research, and social policies impacting children, marriages, and families
• Special pre-publication release of the new Ackerman and Ackerman child placement and custody study
• All-star faculty of attorneys, judges, professors, and mental health professionals from across the country, and special presentation on foster care by First Lady of Virginia Anne B. Holton
• Mock mediation session with professional actors and Chief Judge of the Virginia Court of Appeals, plus small-group workshops with opportunity to put new theories and approaches into practice
• Opportunity to network with other family law professionals from across the country and to hear legal humorist Sean Carter on dealing with stress
• Great location and great price (two dinners, three lunches, and two continental breakfasts included with Symposium fee)
