CFLR is proud to present the 37th 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 2018 course will review the top cases from 2017 as well as important new legislation. Hot topics for 2018 include bonus income, military disability pay, retirement plans, and sanctions. 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 2017 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 recertification credit requirements for one low price (when attended annually), including Legal Ethics, Elimination of Bias and Competence Issues (formerly Substance Abuse credit).
