26th Annual Institute of Family Law 2017

Join us April 21 - 22, 2017 for the 26th Annual Institute of Family Law.  Taking place at the stunning Fairmont Château Montebello, this high-end conference will cover a range of cutting-edge topics tailored to the local Bar.  Hear Phil Augustine speak on the Adult Child; watch Jennifer Jolly and Nikki Gershbain discuss Access to Justice; listen to speakers' comments on Elder Law. On April 21st hear the Judges' Panel on Spousal Support and on April 22nd, catch the Judges' Panel on Ethic Advocacy.  

This premier program is sure to educate, enlighten and engage.  

And as always, the Institute provides an unparalleled experience to mingle and network with counsel and judges.  Connect with fellow members of the Bar throughout the day, during our 3-course dinner and at our Hospitality Suite.  Do not miss the Collins Barrow sponsored post-dinner Hospitality Suite where you will hear the musical talents of The Verdict, and dance the evening away!  

2016 conference feedback:

'Top quality, well prepared speakers'

'The conference this year was better than ever!'

'It was a well thought out and balanced combination of topics of interest to newer and more senior lawyers. I particularly welcome the participation of the judiciary. I am interested in hearing from them. I greatly welcomed the thought provoking presentations.'
