Family Law Experts Series:
California Family Law Report (CFLR) is proud to present the latest installment in its highly-acclaimed Family Law Experts Series. This program, Evidence: Protecting and Challenging Claims of Privilege in Family Law Proceedings, will be led by Justice Mark
Simons and Judge Thomas Trent Lewis, who continue sharing with us their in-depth analyses of the application of Evidence Law
in Family Law proceedings.
Justice Simons and Judge Lewis will teach you how evidentiary privileges arise in common family law settings. You will
interactively rule on evidentiary objections as part of the program. Along with thorough analysis of important statutory
privileges and other confidentiality protections, the program will review procedures for protecting privileged information
and challenging privilege claims on various grounds.
For both novices and seasoned practitioners alike, this is another don’t miss event in the Family Law Expert Series.
