I’ve joined AFCC

Some news from home, for a change.

I’ve joined the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. The AFCC has about 3000 members- not just family lawyers like me, but also judges, mediators, counsellors, psychologists and others, who are focussed on family law.

Starting in California in 1963, the AFCC is an international association of over 3000 members. Its mission is:

  • AFCC is an interdisciplinary, international association of professionals dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through the resolution of family conflict.

  • Vision
  • A justice system in which all professionals work collaboratively through education, support, and access to services to achieve the best possible outcome for children and families.
  • Values
  • Collaboration and respect among professions and disciplines
  • Learning through inquiry, discussion and debate
  • Innovation in addressing the needs of families and children in conflict
