    Product Description

    This comprehensive two-day course provides the family law practitioner with the fundamental skills and approaches necessary to effectively represent clients in divorce. Through a variety of lectures, demonstrations, and "hands-on" workshops, you gain the tools to become a proficient divorce law practitioner. First, our expert faculty provides you with the substantive knowledge to handle divorce work—an overview of the core concepts, statutes, cases, and procedural rules that govern divorce practice. Then you learn by "seeing and doing" in special focus groups where the faculty helps you develop the key skills that a new practitioner needs to master: conducting a client interview, preparing the client's financial statement, arguing a motion in court, and negotiating settlement. You'll walk away with a solid understanding of divorce law practice and the skills necessary to be successful. Don't miss this invaluable opportunity to get "hands-on" training and jumpstart your career!
