OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB), California's premier MCLE provider, invites practicing Family Law attorneys to attend the 2016 Family Law Conference, which will be held in Oxnard on October 20 and 21. With no relief in sight for underfunded, impacted courts, this year's conference focuses on case resolution outside of court and court alternatives for clients who don't want to litigate. A distinguished panel of experts will discuss how to mediate cases, represent clients in collaborative divorce, utilize private judging, and, overall, settle cases given the court's current limitations. In addition, our program will present a year-in-review session to keep attendees current on shifts in and changes to the law.
Full trials are becoming increasingly rare in Family Law; they can take years to set and incur extraordinary costs. With clients demanding alternatives to expensive and protracted court battles, good negotiating skills are now essential for Family Law practitioners. In helping attorneys increase their expertise and expand their practices, CEB's Family Law Conference includes the following programs: Ethically Mediating Family Law Cases, Strategically Using Private Family Law Judges, Effective Collaborative Practice, How to Settle Every Divorce, and Family Law Year in Review.
Speakers at the Family Law Conference are experts in their field and include two retired Family Law judges, attorneys who specialize in various aspects of Family Law, and a psychotherapist whose practice is devoted to mediation and collaborative divorce. They are, respectively: Hon. Jonathan H. Cannon (Ret.); Hon. Gale P. Hickman (Ret.); Diana L. Martinez; Marc S. Tovstein, CFLS; Lisa R. Veizades; Jacqueline A. Whisnant, CFLS; and Carol R. Hughes, PhD, LMFT.
The conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard, an hour up-coast from Los Angeles. Attendees can enjoy the beach, the nearby Channel Islands harbor, water sports and activities, and a vibrant local restaurant scene.
CEB is a program of the University of California that is cosponsored by the State Bar of California. CEB's mission is to provide practical legal resources to help California lawyers achieve success. For more information about the Family Law Conference or CEB products, visit ceb.com.
