FAMILY AND JUVENILE LAW NEWS:


2012/2013 ANNUAL REPORT:

This Section, in conjunction with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and the University of Baltimore School of Law, presented a two-session “Family Law 101” program for new practitioners in September, and also presented its CLE program “Marital Property Workshop” to lawyers who practice in St. Mary’s County in December. It supported legislation to reduce the waiting period of divorce to six months, and legislation to allow parties to file for divorce if they are living separate and apart in the same house. The Section also advocated for the creation of a Commission to study all aspects of custody for the purpose of proposing legislation in this area. It continued to publish its newsletter, Family Law News, on a quarterly basis.


PURPOSE:

The purpose of the Section of Family & Juvenile Law is to promote the objectives of the Maryland State Bar Association by improving the administration of justice in the field of family and juvenile law and at the same time to bring together for furtherance of their mutual interests members of the Maryland State Bar Association concerned with family and juvenile laws and in reforms and improvements in such laws through legislation or otherwise.
