Save the date – family law guideline training

Save the date – family law guideline training

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

From 3 July, the family law guidelines will look and feel very different (see Simpler, clearer family law guidelines commence July 2017).

We’ve restructured and clarified the eligibility criteria and information relating to fees, and provided more guidance in the notes. Short, targeted training is available to guide lawyers through the changes.
