75 New Collaborative Lawyers to be Trained in NYC

On November 29 and 30, 2007, under the sponsorship of Justice Judith Kay, Chief Justice of the New York State Supreme Court, a group of 75 family law attorneys will receive basic (12-hour) training in collaborative family law, as part of an initiative by Justice Kay to create the first publicly funded collaborative law center for low income divorcing couples, in New York City.

I'm honored to be invited to teach at this training, which the court is providing at no cost to participants. The lawyers participating in the program were chosen based on applications; the expectation is that in return for being trained at public expense, they will provide pro bono services in the new center. An interdisciplinary collaborative team training is being planned for early to mid 2008.
