Certified Family Law Specialists: 18 Hours of CFLS Credit for Advanced Collaborative Family Law Course

The Advanced Collaborative Family Law Course to be held at the Straus Dispute Resolution Institute (Pepperdine Law School, Malibu, CA) on June 19-21 has just been approved by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization for 18 hours of certified family law specialist education credits, including one hour in family law legal ethics, and two hours of credit in psychological and counseling aspects of family law.

The course also carries eighteen hours of California MCLE credit, including an hour of legal ethics credit.

The Straus Institute programs are recognized by many or most states for mandatory continuing legal education credit. If you are certified as a family law specialist in a state other than California, check with your own certifying authority regarding whether it will recognize this course for certified specialist purposes.
