Saturday, 28 April

The Family Law System is currently undergoing a major review. The Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) has released an Issues Paper for its Review of the Family Law System>>, and is calling for submissions. The ALRC law reform process relies on as much stakeholder participation as possible.

The NSW Family Law Special Interest Group (SIG) at Resolution Institute invites FDRPs and Family Law mediator members to participate in a workshop discussion aimed at addressing key questions raised in the Issues Paper that relate to Family Dispute Resolution (FDR).

This 3-hour event will support members to engage with peers, consider the Issues Paper questions and contribute to the law reform process. The Family Law SIG will submit the notes arising from the discussion to form part of a national Resolution Institute response.

Light refreshments will be provided.
