2021 Family Law Conference
Big Questions in a Small World: International Issues in Singapore Family Practice
LAWASIA has the great pleasure to support the 2021 Family Law Conference organised by The Law Society of Singapore, 28-29 September 2021
In addition to domestic law matters, the family lawyer practising in Singapore today will likely also be advising globalised Singapore families as well as foreign families living in Singapore. The Family Conference 2021 titled, “Big Questions in a Small World: International Issues in Singapore Family Practice” will be held virtually over 2 days to explore the multi-faceted challenges posed by the cross-border issues presented in family law practice.
Jointly organised by the Family Law Practice Committee, Probate Practice Committee, and the Muslim Law Practice Committee of the Law Society of Singapore, it is hoped that this Conference, with expert panels comprising prominent local and foreign judges, practitioners and academics, will inform and inspire the Singapore family lawyer as we delve into these Big Questions in our Small World together.
For LAWASIA members wishing to participate, please choose "LAWASIA Member" when registering.
