Presents
Family Law Symposium: The Complexity Of Custody Litigation
The Beverly Hills Bar Association Family Law Symposium has been a major event for the family law bar more than forty years, attracting leading practitioners from all over California, providing superb reference materials and MCLE credit.

This year's presentation concerns practical cross-over issues for the Family Law Practitioner, including:, Custody Litigation, Domestic Violence and the intersection between the Family Law Court, Dependency Court and the Criminal Court.

After extensive feedback from the Family Law community, we believe that the judicial officer's perspective is highly valued amongst Family Law Practitioners. Therefore, this year's symposium will be unique and exciting in that the majority of panel members will be judicial officers.
