Popular Diploma in Family Law commencing in October 2019
Applications are now being accepted for the Diploma in Family Law which commences on 1 October 2019.
This course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of family law in this jurisdiction and will examine recent cutting-edge developments in core areas of family law and practice. The objective of this diploma is to provide practitioners with an essential overview of the many recent developments in family law and the implications for day-to-day client advice, practice, and procedure.
Recent legislative initiatives to be considered will include the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015 (of which a number of key parts have yet to be commenced), the Domestic Violence Act 2018 (which brings in significant changes to reliefs available to those in an intimate relationship), and the Assisted Human Reproduction Bill 2017. The course also focuses on topical family law issues, such as family breakdown, child custody, and the increasingly practical issue of enforcement of orders abroad. Other matters reviewed will include parentage, surrogacy arrangements, and the law relating to guardianship, custody of, and access to children.
