This past weekend, family law faculty and mental health professionals gathered in Connecticut to begin work on a series of curriculum modules to help fill the gaps in family law education identified by the Family Law Education Reform project (see post from October 27, 2005 for more information on that report). The workshop was co-sponsored by the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts and Hofstra University. The first set of curriculum modules will cover working with clients; alternative dispute resolution in family law; child development/family systems; and working with experts. Each module will be developed by an interdisciplinary team of family law faculty and other professionals with expertise in the field.
