Ethics & Professional Responsibility

Thursday 21st July 2022


Join a panel discussion with Fiona Kirkman, Joanne Law and Dina Lioumis, for this 90 minute CPD webinar focusing on ethical practice and how to identify potential conflicts of interest.

Family law professionals come across ethical dilemmas and conflicts of interest in their work all the time. When taking on potential clients, they must know how to both recognise possible conflicts of interest, and how to deal with them.

This webinar will cover:

The ethical decision making framework that family law professionals should be working within

  • What constitutes a conflict of interest
  • How to conduct a conflict of interest check, with a showcase of FamilyProperty’s new conflict checker tool
  • What constitutes genuine steps and effort to resolve a family law dispute and should lawyers / mediators be making this assessment
  • A showcase of FamilyProperty’s new FCFCOA Certificate of Dispute Resolution form, FCFCOA Genuine Steps Certificate and the Section 60I Certificate
  • The line between legal information vs legal advice, including a showcase of the automated legal information within the FamilyProperty questionnaire and disclosure portal
  • Tips and traps for avoiding complaints in family law and family mediation matters

*‍ If you are in the legal industry you can claim 1.5 CPD points for attending this event under Ethics and Professional Responsibility. Conditions may differ for each state, so please check with your industry body to confirm eligibility. FamilyProperty is not responsible for keeping track of individual attendance and acquired CPD points.
