Collaborative divorce has been around since the 1990s and while it grows in popularity each year, it's still very niche. It goes against the grain of traditional legal practice and adversarial negotiation methods, finding a new way to serve clients and opening up what advocacy can mean. In this program, Nicole Quallen and Sarah McIntyre of Two Families Law lead you through the nuts and bolts of what collaborative law is, and then they tackle the tougher question of how to make it successful.
Explore relevant statutes, "the pledge," non-violent communication, client management, the tension (or not!) between advocacy and collaboration, and some of the ways collaborative practice is used beyond family law. In addition to exploring how this approach can be helpful for clients, learn how collaborative law can be a healthy and sustainable practice for attorneys.
