Family Law Section Events

May 21-23, 2015
2015 Family Law Institute, Amelia Island, Fla.

We hope you will be able to attend the 2015 Family Law Institute at The Omni, Amelia Island, Florida. This year’s Institute will be chaired by Regina Quick and will be another great learning and social experience for everyone. The program will cover a range of the most current and hottest family law topics.
Continuing what has become a tradition, the section plans to invite a number of Georgia judges. We expect a great turnout. With so many jurists attending, there again will be a great opportunity for you to discuss policies and procedures impacting on this important practice area. The ICLE brochure will be sent out around the beginning of February 2015.
The Institute will take place from May 21-23, 2015. We have set aside a block of reduced-price rooms at The Omni. The per-night base rate for an Ocean View Room is $249, plus fees. As is our Family Law Institute tradition, we will have receptions on Thursday and Friday - likely with our now-famous “Specific Deviations” band at Friday's reception, a tennis tournament on Thursday and a golf tournament on Friday.
