Group Allocation of Participants
Group allocation is based on levels of practice experience and advocacy experience. Participants are asked for professional background information and allocated to a group with similar background and experience.
AAI trained instructors are selected to work with a particular group and their teaching is directed to the specific level of that group.
AAI Family Law workshops are taught by trained instructors in the Institute’s skills method. Instructors are family law practitioners or members of the family court judiciary.
AAI workshops qualify for full CPD/CLE points.
