The Institute is taking shape for 2019!  Join us to learn more about costs, management of high conflict files, challenging spousal support issues, arbitration and advocacy and more, including the highly anticipated judicial panel on spousal and child support.

No other conference in Ontario enjoys this level of judicial participation and involvement. Confirmed presenters include Justices Audet, Summers, McSweeney, Parent, Shelston, MacEachern, Chappel, and Czutrin.
Cutting edge developments in family law will be shared by Phil Epstein, Rollie Thompson and leading family law practitioners from the East Region.
This conference is so much more than just a CPD exercise! Mingle with your colleagues and members of the Bench; relax and enjoy the (tax deductible!) comforts and luxury of the Fairmont Chateau Montebello, with entertainment and dancing in the generously sponsored Heritage Room.
