FLPA Twilight Seminar/Webinar
Dispute Resolution Events in the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia: What every practitioner needs to know
Thursday, 6 May 2021
The Family Law Practitioners Association is pleased to welcome Senior Registrar Rice to the 2021 twilight program to present to members about dispute resolution events in the Family and Federal Circuit Court.
In 2021 the courts will offer significant family dispute resolution events and practitioners can expect to see orders for such events made with increasing frequency. In this session the Courts’ Executive Director of Dispute Resolution, Senior Registrar Anne-Marie Rice, will provide an overview of these and other court-based ADR events and provide tips on what to expect and how best to prepare.
About Senior Registrar Rice
Senior Registrar Rice is a highly sought-after mediator and trainer and is recognised by her peers as one of the best in her field. She is currently a senior Registrar and the Executive Director of Dispute Resolution at the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.
Registrar Rice adopts a philosophy that “conflict can be resolved without combat” and her acceptance speech after being named the 2018 WLAQ Leneen Forde AC Woman Lawyer of the Year, in which she spoke of the exhaustion of an aggressive approach to legal practice, became an industry and social media sensation.
Registrar Rice brings to her engaging and thought-provoking presentations, learnings from psychology, neuroscience and mediation to challenge the traditional legal response to conflict, including in a court context.
Drinks and canapes will be provided for those attending the event in person.
When: 5.30pm, Thursday 6 May 2021
Where: In person at Vincents Chartered Accountants (capacity to be confirmed) or by Webinar.
