CFLR is proud to present the 36th annual Family Law Refresher Course (FLRC), providing current case law and statutory review, in-depth analysis of trends in family law, strategic planning, and best practice tips. The 2017 course will review the top cases from 2016 as well as important new legislation. Hot topics for 2017 include date of separation, child support, expert witnesses, and disqualification of counsel. FLRC is sure to enhance your lawyering skills inside and outside of the courtroom. This is a program you will not want to miss! Lunch will be included.


The program consists of one day (6 hours) of live presentation, plus 5 hours of on-demand video lectures. Additionally, FLRC attendees who need Psychology and Counseling BLS credit will be given free access to view online the Psychology and Counseling Aspects of Family Law program from the 2015 Advanced Family Law Course. This lecture as well as the on-demand portion of the FLRC program can be accessed at any time and any place at your convenience by visiting CFLRonline.com after the live program locations conclude. With the addition of on-demand video, FLRC still satisfies ALL your MCLE and BLS credit requirements for one low price (when attended annually), including Legal Ethics, Elimination of Bias and Competence Issues (formerly Substance Abuse credit).
