Marissa de Almeida and Ron Ladage, 2017 Legal College Co-Chairs
The 2017 CSDA Legal College has an exciting and innovative new line-up this year starring excellent trainings for Child Support attorneys and legal staff alike. The CSDA Legal College will be held October 16-19, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel. We are planning an interactive event in which audience participation is not just encouraged but is a vital part of the learning process. Through the use of modern technology we will open up a broad dialogue among colleagues throughout the State about legal best practices, recent changes to law and policy, and important networking opportunities to give attorneys resources within the program when assistance is needed.
We will be featuring training sessions that cover technical topics from UIFSA 2008 and the Hague Convention to the intricacies of Guideline Calculations. We will also incorporate training on topics of recent importance to the program such as State Hearings, Making an Appellate Record, and New Legislative and Case Law Updates. We will delve into how attorneys fit into the LCSAs’ strategic plans and will have highly regarded presenters both from within the IV-D world as well as specialists from private practice to talk about the new and exciting legal issues within parentage and the modern family. These are teasers of just a few of the “shows” we plan to “air” this fall at Legal College. Please join us in making the 2017 CSDA Legal College October’s “most watched and best show.”
