The COVID-19 pandemic is taking its toll on California families. As domestic violence and divorce rates are on the rise, having a basic understanding of family law could be beneficial for any legal practitioner in California.

In order to help attorneys with little or no family law experience and self-represented litigants, the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Supervising Attorney Stephanie Baez will educate attendees on family law issues such as divorce, child custody, and child support.  Attendees will learn legal basics and how to advise clients on these issues in light of changes to the legal landscape due to COVID-19.  The training will also include an overview of San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Family Law Clinic and how attorneys can volunteer to assist indigent family law litigants.

This webinar is part of our series of continuing legal education (CLE) classes. Since the  physical locations of the library closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned our CLE programs online as webinars.
