Junior Family Law Webinars
As we approach the mid-way point of our Spring/Summer family law programme of webinars, our junior members are pleased to present four webinars aimed at more junior solicitors, providing helpful tips across financial remedies, private and public law family cases.
The first four webinars in our programme were aimed at experienced solicitors and focus on fact finding hearings and public law cases and the recordings can be viewed here.

Junior Family Law Webinars
Thursday 18th May - Preparing for success at FDR
Hannah Cox and Catrin Howells
FDRs are a fundamental pillar of financial remedy proceedings, however, they are strange hearings in many ways and often require a significant amount of preparation to be effective. This talk is aimed at helping you prepare documents for FDR, manage client expectations and what to do post-FDR if parties are unable to reach settlement.
Thursday 1 June - Experts in private children law proceedings
Eléonore Berthelsen and Samuel Davis
Join Samuel and Eléonore for this webinar where they discuss experts in private children law proceedings including:
When do you need an expert?
Persuading the court - how to do a good part 25 application;
What to do when you receive the report – applications and challenges.
Thursday 8 June - An Introduction to DOLS
Charmaine Clubb and Jennifer Youngs
A webinar intended to assist junior solicitors in identifying when DOLS issues may arise, and when applications should be considered. Tips to assist in making those applications and troubleshooting common problems.
Thursday 22 June - Drafting a Re A compliant threshold
James Sharpe and Helen Nettleship
Threshold documents are frequently criticised by parties and judges in children cases for not being compliant with the guidance in Re A (A Child)  EWFC 11, but it is sometimes far from obvious how to put that guidance in practice in order to draft a helpful threshold document. James Sharpe and Helen Nettleship will take you through the process of identifying and presenting the key issues in a case in order to draft threshold documents in a way that will reduce the risk of judicial criticism and may assist in making cases more efficient to run as proceedings continue.
