Supporting, Healing, Reconstructing – The New Landscape

The Family Conference returns for its third year on 14 and 15 September 2020. Jointly organised by the Family Law Practice Committee, Probate Practice Committee, and the Muslim Law Practice Committee, the Family Conference 2020 aims to build on the success of its first two iterations while keeping an eye on the multifaceted and fast-paced developments in the family law landscape since 2019.

The 2-day conference will be held via 8 webinars focusing on topics that are central to the practice of family lawyers. Following from the theme of “Supporting, Healing, and Reconstructing” of the past 2 Family Conferences, expert panels comprising prominent local and foreign judges, practitioners and academics will address a range of hot-button topics including different perspectives on therapeutic justice; expanding the definition of guardianship; the best interests of the child; Singapore family law’s unique power to divide matrimonial assets; recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments for division of assets; multiplicity of proceedings in family and probate matters; and the jurisdictional issues between the Syariah and family courts.
This Conference will benefit practitioners interested in family law and those looking to take their practice in this area of law to the next level.
