AAML IL Columbus Day program 2018: This Columbus Day, Gunnar J. Gitlin co-chaired the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyer’s 12th Annual Columbus Day Program for Experienced Family Lawyers. This program has become the most well attended continuing legal education program in Illinois on the topic of Illinois divorce and paternity law. Our program progressed from 60 attendees 12 years ago to the 2015 through 2017 programs where 400 people attended with each being sold out. For 2017, the seminar was “Powered by IICLE” and ICLE has our program available via video reply with materials. Click here to for program materials or to attend the program online. Our 2018 seminar focuses on the new 2019 maintenance amendments, the impact of the 2018 tax cuts on our family-law practices, the 2018 Collaborative Process Act, with a special guest lecturers from Minnesota and Los Angeles, CA. I will be providing a short presentation on the Collaborative Process Act of 2018 and the new Supreme Court Rule specifically addressing collaborative practice in family law cases.
Martin Luther King Day seminar 2019: Gunnar J. Gitlin will be providing his case law update this year and last year he co-presented on this topic.
Drafting Marital Settlement Agreements seminar 2018/2019: On September 6, 2018, the IICLE will sponsor its drafting marital settlement seminar. Gunnar J. Gitlin put the original program materials together for the 1998, 1999 and 2000 programs. This program has been repeated and updated in 2006, 2013 and 2013. It will be reprised for this September and is already sold out. The entire curriculum for our program has been rewritten and updated. This program is perhaps one of the most well-received family law programs in the state and has an outstanding faculty. Because of the high demand for this program, we will be reprising it some time in the spring of 2019.
