2020 Family Law Institute


Due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person Family Law Institute at the Saint Paul RiverCentre, scheduled for March 23-24.  We had hoped to hold the event, but the health of all participants is our top priority.

As an alternative, we are offering a two-day webcast stream of the plenary sessions and selected breakout sessions live on March 23 and 24. 

Webcast viewers will receive: 

  • Presentations of all plenary sessions, including the popular Case Law and Legislative Update, and selected breakout sessions. The complete schedule will be posted under the Schedule & Faculty tab when it is finalized. 
  • Access to the electronic versions of all institute materials, including the Case Law and Legislative Update, breakout session materials for all sessions, and all PowerPoint slides. 
  • 11.5 CLE credits for viewing the entire webcast. 
  • Plus three scheduled post-Institute webcasts on April 2 and 3. 
  • Plus three hours of On-Demand programs of your choice (a special bonus benefit for webcast viewers).

Thank you to all Family Law Institute planners, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for your understanding and support!
