The 24th Annual Family Law Update


I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. Due to our continued mask mandate at Court and the state of our current pandemic, this year’s Family Law Update will take the form of a self-study option. This option will be free of charge to all attorneys who request the self-study materials. The materials will provide 4 hours of MCLE credit. The final materials will be available upon request by April 15, 2022. Please let us know by March 30, 2022 if you would like the materials for self-study.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time. I am hopeful that we will all be able to get together in person again for the update in 2023.

Take care,

Commissioner LaChance
