Training and Research Centre
The International Centre for Children and Family Law is a child focused research and training centre emphasising appropriate inclusion of children in matters that affect them.
The centre offers specialized training in the areas of child inclusion, children’s rights, child and adolescent development, high conflict separation and divorce, domestic violence and the impact on children and families, child protection and innovative alternative dispute resolution practices including children.
Based in Calgary, Canada, and Sydney, Australia, the Centre seeks opportunities to collaborate with other child focused colleagues. In 2018 we formed collaborative partnerships with:
- DEAKIN UNIVERSITY
- RELATIONSHIPS AUSTRALIA
- ALBERTA JUSTICE AND SOLICITOR GENERAL
- MEDIATION WEST, NEBRASKA
- W.K. FAMILY LAWYERS, CALGARY
In light of the COVID-19 virus and the decisions by nations to close borders, we are working to get all of our courses into an online format. The courses will remain highly interactive and skills based, and will provide opportunities for skill development within the online learning environment. We will have more information in the coming weeks.
