Family Law "How To" Series:
Solving Complicated, Yet Common,
Problems in Family Law
California Family Law Report (CFLR) is proud to present the first program in our new Family Law “How To” Series. This practical course is designed for every level of family law practitioner, whether you practice solo or as part of a firm. Our expert panelists will address multiple situations you’ve likely faced or will face in your practice. We will cover discovery, ethics and professional responsibility, competence, evidence, custody, support, and fees. We also will discuss and debate the solutions, so you’ll be prepared to handle either side of the argument. This course will enhance your knowledge of the law, equip you with useful information to incorporate into your daily practice, and save you countless hours of expensive research.
