110 More Irish Collaborative Lawyers

Last week in Dublin, more than 110 family law solicitors (and one barrister) attended a two-day introductory training in collaborative family law, presented by Pauline Tesler. The event was sponsored and subsidized by the Legal Aid Board of Ireland, which provides representation in nearly half of the divorces and legal separation actions in Ireland and which is strongly supportive of collaborative divorce.

The total number of trained collaborative lawyers in Ireland is now approaching 300. In addition, nearly 60 mental health counselors have become involved in providing coaching services to collaborative divorce clients in the southern part of Ireland, as a result of efforts of the Association of Collaborative Professionals, based in Cork, Ireland.
