May 12, 2021, 17:00

The National School of Judges, with assistance from the USAID New Justice Program and in cooperation with the National Judicial College, Reno, USA offers a series of open webinars on various topics for judges, judicial clerks, and court staff.

The next webinar in this series – “Managing Challenging Family Law Cases.”

This webinar is for any judge who hears family law cases involving the dissolution of marriages, child custody and visitation, and domestic violence and juvenile matters. Among others, the faculty will provide practice-based tools to assist judges in effectively managing the most complex issues in domestic relations and working with people who have had a variety of life experiences, including trauma. This event will also be useful for judicial assistants, court staff and lawyers, who practice family law.

After this 120-minute webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the key aspects of the U.S. justice response to the challenging family law issues;
  • Learn to apply tools to preside over challenging family law cases, whether litigated matters are related to custody and children or businesses and property.
  • Learn to use case management techniques to communicate with all litigants, including self-represented, more efficiently.

Working language: English. Simultaneous translation into Ukrainian will be provided.

The webinar will be conducted on the Zoom platform. You can join the meeting at this link.
