The Family Law section is geared towards providing educational, networking and community service opportunities for Mass LGBTQ Bar members who are either family law practitioners or have an interest in family law topics. The section plans, hosts and sponsors CLEs and seminars covering a wide array of topics that are important to family law practitioners who are frequently encountering issues unique to non-traditional families. The section’s social events, which range from monthly lunches to meet-ups at the organization's happy hour, provide excellent networking opportunities for those who just joined the bar to those who are seasoned veterans. The section is also exploring drafting and commenting on legislation that will have a great impact on LGBTQ families in Massachusetts. Approximately 120 members of the association identify as a family law practitioner or interested in family law.
The Family Law section Board liaison is Annika Bockius-Suwyn ([email protected]).
