Advanced Family Law Course
Intensive review designed for the experienced
family law professional . . .
California Family Law Report (CFLR) will present the bi-annual Advanced Family Law Course (AFLC) in August 2013. This comprehensive and intensive program showcases an all-star faculty of over 20 justices, judges and lawyers.
AFLC is designed for experienced family law practitioners looking to fortify their knowledge, as well as attorneys new to family law looking to set themselves apart from their peers. It is also a "must" for those preparing to take the Certified Family Law Specialist Exam! Our expert faculty will provide test-taking tips and suggestions on how to improve your study skills. Attendees will sit for a practice exam that will be reviewed at the end of the course.
The program consists of 6 days (33 hours) of live presentations, plus 22 hours of on-demand video lectures. These video lectures can be accessed at any time and any place, so that you can review exam topics or focus on particular substantive areas at your convenience. This State Bar-approved course will satisfy the entire educational requirement for Family Law Specialist certification (or recertification), including 6 hours of credit in Category 5 (Psychology and Counseling).
Past attendees, as well as first-timers, will benefit from AFLC's guidance on complex family law issues and up-to-the-minute review of new developments in the field. This is truly a "don't miss" event!
