SBM Domestic Violence Committee Offers Free Pro Bono Training

8/20/13

The State Bar of Michigan Domestic Violence Committee will offer an in-person training on how to handle pro bono family law cases with domestic violence components from 1-5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25 at Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Lansing Campus. It will be simultaneously broadcast to Cooley's three other campuses in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, and Grand Rapids.

The training, provided by attorneys with many years of hands-on family law experience, will cover initial client interviews, substantive legal issues, pleadings, and pretrial and trial practices as they relate to family law cases with domestic violence components. It will offer a comprehensive introduction to family and domestic violence law for attorneys new to this area of practice, and will also serve as a great refresher for more experienced attorneys.

The training is free of charge for attorneys who commit to take on a pro bono family law case within six months. Register online. For more information contact SBM Pro Bono Counsel Robert Mathis at (517) 346-6412 or rmathis@mail.michbar.org.
