Are you wondering how you may assist the Probate and Family Court at a time when budgetary constraints and staffing shortages create particular challenges while simultaneously learning skills that may expand and grow your law practices at little or no cost to you? Look no further…..

The Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Bar Association cordially invite family law practitioners with at least five (5) years of domestic relations experience to participate in a conciliation training at the Boston Bar Association Headquarters located at 16 Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts on October 5, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

At this program, you will become certified as a conciliator that will enable you to be placed on the Probate and Family Courts' list of trained conciliators. Attendance at the program is free, except for the fees associated with materials if you do not print them out yourself.

In exchange, you will be asked to commit to volunteering for at least one day at the Probate and Family Court as a conciliator or for a "conciliation" project such as the pilot program at the Suffolk Probate and Family Court.

There are limited spots left to participate in this unique opportunity, so please respond quickly if you wish to attend. Participants will be able to attend on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are already a trained conciliator and are interested in volunteer conciliation opportunities, please contact the Boston Bar Association's Family Law Steering Committee.
