AAML-IL Annual Columbus Day Seminar 2018 for Experienced Matrimonial Lawyers

The Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers’ Columbus Day Seminar—powered by IICLE®—was sold out again in 2018. The 2018 Columbus Day seminar addresses the latest critical changes to Illinois family law, including the year-end elimination of the maintenance deduction, changes to statutory law, and the Supreme Court Rule governing the practice of collaborative law. Take an in-depth look at the tax impacts due to the loss of the deductibility of maintenance and other changes to tax law. Learn how to use social media and web-based marketing effectively. Hear a panel of distinguished mediators (many of whom are former judges) explain the value of lawyer-assisted mediation in family-law cases. From a California guest speaker, understand the concept of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and their effect on children, litigants, and even ourselves.
