ETHICAL ISSUES FACING FAMILY LAWYERS
Lawyers owe a duty both to the client and to the court.
This session is designed to address, in a practical way, how family lawyers can safely and ethically navigate the new normal of unrepresented litigants, busy practice demands, unbundled services, disgruntled clients and Law Society complaints without violating the rules of professional conduct. The ethical demands of duty counsel will also be discussed.
Please join in this important discussion about professionalism. This session has been approved for 1.5 professional hours by L.S.U.C.

CLEO is pleased to announce a new online resource: Steps in a Family Law Case.
Three interactive flowcharts help people understand and work through the family law process:
– Before you start, takes people through the opening stages, including issues families need to think about and ways to resolve their issues
– As an Applicant in a family court case
– As a Respondent in a family court case
Each box links to detailed information on what the law requires at that stage in the process. People are also directed to all the relevant family law rules and forms, as well as practical online guides. A glossary defines difficult legal terms and concepts, such as filing, issuing and serving documents.
