The program for the day is focused on giving you the skills you need to maintain a healthy practice in family law, including:

Are you listening...really? with Mary Raymont (Mediator, Advantage Mediation) and Karen Barham (Consultant, Barlow Robbins)

This interactive workshop aims to get back to basics, focusing on improving your listening skills to help you properly represent and work with clients and identify suitable processes to improve your practice.

We will focus on how to listen actively and respectfully in various settings, observe nonverbal communications and to pay attention to what is being said rather than anticipating what the other person will say.

These skills will greatly enhance not only your client to professional relationship but also your professional to professional relationships more generally.

Looking at ways in which everyday technology is affecting family law cases with Byron James (Partner, Expatriate Law)

We use technology every day in our lives, from smart devices to apps, and so do clients. What information is held on those devices, and in the cloud, that could be used to achieve a fair outcome in family proceedings? This talk will cover how to use WhatsApp to serve applications, how to use Facebook Messenger to locate an abducted child and how to establish that a party has a decentralised cryptocurrency currency wallet that leaves no external trace and is not held by any bank.

"LSPO - what you should know" with Katherine Dunseath (Barrister, 1 Garden Court)

Katherine will cover what you need to know about Legal Services Payment Orders referencing statute and case law. Katherine will also address the recent case law on retrospective lump sums and the evidence required.

Focusing the legal mind with Mark Randall (mindfulness specialist, CEO of MRC Ltd and Co-Founder of AlphaMind)

Mindfulness training carefully aligned to the pressures and challenges of modern day life and complex environments based upon the formula used by the US Military Special Forces Mindfitness programme.
