Event description
Volunteer Legal Services' annual Divorce Basics Seminar provides valuable legal education on the nuts and bolts of family law.

About this event

VLS invites you to attend its 2021 Divorce Basics Seminar on Friday Dec. 3rd 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This annual seminar is a signature CLE training for the Central Texas legal community, providing valuable legal education on the nuts and bolts of family law.

The Impact of Divorce Basics

Each year, thousands of low-income Central Texans turn to VLS for legal help with family law matters. For many of them, VLS is their only resource. To ensure we can meet this need, VLS offers this seminar at no cost to attorneys who agree to take two family law cases involving domestic violence through VLS during the 2022 calendar year.
