Designed to also be a refresher course for more experienced collaborative law practitioners, the event will provide an overview of multidisciplinary collaborative practice and relationship building for lawyers, mental health professionals, mediators and financial specialists. Of equal importance, local collaborative lawyers will meet colleagues with similar practices, allowing new collaborations and professional networks to be formed.
