The Train the Trainers is an opportunity for attorneys to be trained as presenters for “Family Law for the People: Understanding the Law and Court Process,” the Family and Juvenile Law Section and Department of Family Administration's seminar for self-represented litigants and people who are yet-to-be represented.
Family Law for the People is a free, three-hour informational seminar that presents substantive and procedural information in a manner that is understandable to the general public. Available throughout the state and featuring experienced family law attorneys, the seminar covers topics including:
- Child custody and support;
- Court process;
- Representation; and
- Alternatives to trial.
The seminar is supplemented by a participant handbook, which includes the seminar’s PowerPoint presentation with notes to enhance learning, a glossary of terms, sample forms, and an index of legal resources.
Attorneys who successfully complete the Train the Trainers will be added to a roster of presenters recruited by courts to present the seminar. Attorneys are encouraged to serve as presenters on a pro bono basis but will also be eligible for an $80 per hour fee.
Special thanks to Professor Barbara Babb of the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts for hosting this event.
