IAML PRESS RELEASE: Forced Marriage Statement

Posted: 18 Mar 2013 by CHeryl Hepfer

My second initiative, as President of the IAML, is to take a stand against forced marriage.  To that end, we have prepared a press release which will be disseminated in the near future.  We hope that our actions will have a significant impact in eliminating this practice, which is more prevalent, world-wide, than most of us realize.  It was at our meeting last year, in Singapore, that Anne-Marie Hutchinson, OBE, and other speakers brought this issue to our attention.   Our efforts to educate and inform will play but a small role in promoting change.  But we, as family lawyers, must take a stand.  Please continue to follow my Blog for updates.
