Public Interest Law Initiative

Discussing Hot Topics in Family Law

Posted on: July 24, 2017

On June 23rd, PILI’s Fifth Judicial Pro Bono Committee and Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation provided a complimentary CLE on “Hot Topics in Family Law” at the Charleston Carnegie Public Library. A similar CLE was hosted by the Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee in Champaign on July 21st.

Family law is one of the greatest areas of need in civil legal aid, and changing rules make it important to stay up-to-date. Topics included new child support rules, guardianships, parenting plans, the Domestic Relations Act and a case law update.

Attendees agreed to take on a pro bono matter within the next year and received 3.0 hours of MCLE credit. Special thanks to all those who attended and to the speakers.
