Map and Directions
The conference is designed principally for local lawyers and academics from the Western United States, Mexico and Canada, however it is hoped that as many IAFL Fellows as possible will also attend. The conference will provide information about the practice of international family law. We have found our conferences have been greatly appreciated by the local legal community wherever we have held them and have been a great way for us to get to know local lawyers, judges and academics who are involved in family law. It is a good way to show local lawyers the work that we do in IAFL.
The conference registration fee of US $199 covers conference attendance, tea and coffee breaks, lunch and a post-conference reception.
The conference will focus on the following topics:
- International Discovery of Financial Information, a "How To"
- International Enforcement Issues, a "How To"
- The Hague Convention on Custody, a "What and How"
- International Issues Concerning Same Sex Parents
- International Parenting Agreements: "Perils and Enforcement"
We will start at 8:30 am with registration and the program starting at 9:00 am until 5:00 pm with lunch included. There is an 5:00 to 6:30 pm Reception for you to attend so you can mingle with IAFL Fellows and other attendees. We are applying for 6 CLEs in California.
Due to the increase use of alternate booking sites and the prices of hotels near The University Club of San Fracisco IAFL has decided not to reserve a room block as we do not want to take on incurring "liquidated damages" for not filling the block. The address of the property is at the top of the screen and there are multiple ways to get around San Francisco as both Tolley lines cross near by.
Sponsor San Francisco
We would very much welcome offers of sponsorship from Fellows, their firms or other firms wishing to develop a relationship with IAFL. All sponsors will be recognised on our website, in conference materials and during the course of the conference, and would have the opportunity to distribute promotional material to delegates. Please contact Jim Louis via email@example.com if you are interested in sponsoring the conference.
Full refund of registration fee if cancellation occurs before April 23, 2019 less US$35 administration fee per person (credit card costs and expenses of the administrator). No refund of registration fees thereafter.
