16th National Family Law Conference in October 2014.

 Family Law: Evolution or Revolution

Welcome to Sydney

Sydney plays host to the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia’s 16th National Family Law Conference in October 2014.

The National Family Law Conference is the leading and largest regular legal event held in Australia. The host city of Sydney welcomes delegates to enjoy its inspiring location, magnificent beaches, iconic venues, landmark attractions and cultural events.

The Sydney 2014 Conference will offer not only an outstanding collection of speakers from Australia and overseas, but will introduce a dynamic format aimed at encouraging the exchange of ideas and increasing the level of interaction between presenters and the audience.

The Conference theme is “Family Law – Evolution or Revolution”. With the assistance of our National Advisory Board, the organising committee has developed a program that will benefit and challenge all delegates, regardless of their experience or type of practice. Sessions will cover the most up to date developments in the law, practical issues for Family Lawyers, and input from other disciplines as well as examining how our system can be improved and how those who interact with it can foster change.

The local organising committee is under the co-chairmanship of Michael Kearney SC and Paul Doolan. Together with the assistance of their hardworking committee, they promise not only an outstanding professional program, but an exciting series of social events and family activities to ensure an opportunity to renew old acquaintances and foster new bonds with colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you in Sydney in 2014.
