6.5 Total MCLE Credits

The Family Law Section is pleased to present a full-day “Trial of a Custody Case” program which will be almost all demonstration by experienced matrimonial lawyers performing direct and cross examinations of a mother, father, and custody expert in a simulated child custody case. New York judges on the faculty will rule on the attorneys’ questioning and on evidentiary issues, when necessary, in the course of this simulated trial.

 

The faculty will convey recommended techniques in preparing for and trying a custody case. You will hear from the custody expert on how the report is prepared. The judge on the panel will review his/her role and the judge’s conduct of the Lincoln hearing in which the child (with the attorney for the child present) may be questioned by the judge in camera.

The program also includes the useful review of the latest cases and trends in matrimonial law.

This course will provide you with a fresh look at proven approaches, techniques and styles of successful matrimonial lawyers in custody cases.
