Q & A
In a recent interview, we spoke with Bud to find out more about this program. Here’s what he had to say.
Can you tell me about the topics that are going to be covered at this program?
The general purpose of this program is to deal with topics of interest for people that are involved in regular family law chambers applications, which – right now – dominate the family law landscape. We’re going to be dealing with everything from contested chambers applications, special chambers applications, and how to deal with self-represented parties, onwards to protections orders, case management, and Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP) matters. We plan to provide some hands-on, practical approaches for dealing with chambers matters.”
What will attendees find most beneficial about this program?
It’s our hope that attendees will come away feeling that they have obtained new information in terms of ways for managing chambers matters, how to handle applications, and how to handle some of the issues that arise.”
Can you tell me about the panel that has been brought together for this program?
We’ve put together a panel that has a lot of experience in family chambers matters. We’ve also obtained people from MEP to come and speak on issues pertaining to that program and have recently confirmed Justice M.R. Bast as a panel member. We are looking forward to hearing what Justice Bast has to say from the bench’s perspective.”
What will be the key program takeaway?
This is a practice orientated seminar, providing attendees with practice pointers and ways of dealing with matters that they may not have considered. My hope is that we will have a lot of discussion between the group and the panel regarding practical issues.”
What excites you about this program?
I am anxious and excited to hear what my co-presenters have to say about some of these issues, and I expect to get a lot out of this myself. I know that Justice Bast will have a lot of valuable comments. She is on the panel to provide feedback to anyone who has questions.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to get tips that will enhance your practice. Join us for Family Law: Chambers Advocacy and Practice Pointers on April 21 (Red Deer).
We look forward to seeing you there!
