Family Law Half Day Masterclass – Drafting Complex Agreements and Orders
Leo Cussen Centre for Law, Level 16, 15 William Street, Melbourne
This intensive program will take an in-depth look at the finer drafting points and important considerations in the following key areas of family law.
Our presenters will address the nuances that can arise in complex situations and give you confidence that your drafting skills are at their best.
This Special program will cover:
