DALLAS BAR ASSOCIATION COLLABORATIVE LAW SECTION
GLOBAL COLLABORATIVE LAW COUNCIL
7th ANNUAL CIVIL COLLABORATIVE LAW TRAINING & SYMPOSIUM
August 24-25, 2011
As a collaborative professional, wouldn't you like to offer your pro bono hours in a place where it could make a monumental positive impact on families and not require you to litigate? Do you despair at times about what difference you can make when you try to assist someone who is caught up in the CPS system? Do you ever wonder if the services were actually tailored to the needs of a particular family they might be "set up to succeed"? Do you wish you had more opportunities to hone your collaborative skills or demonstrate to other collaborative professionals that you have the skills? Do you want to network with other dedicated collaborative professionals because you are energized by working in interdisciplinary teams? Do you have a passion for abused and neglected children and for helping families remain intact if at all possible? If any of these questions resonate with you, there is a place for you.
