2022 State of Family Law Program

Online | Brisbane | Sydney | Melbourne

The recent merger of the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia has promised to deliver justice more effectively, efficiently, and inexpensively. While this presents a great end-result in theory, this merger represents the most significant change to the family court since 1975.

So, what does this all mean for practising family lawyers?

To help navigate this unprecedented change, Smokeball Australia & FamilyProperty are proud to deliver the 2022 State of Family Law Program. Join us at free-to-attend, CPD accredited events in February and June as we bring together leaders in family law to explore the key changes that have arisen from this merger, while identifying practical solutions for family law firms seeking to navigate this unfamiliar territory.
