Family Law and Children's Rights Conference
Event date: 11 Jul 2021
IAFL Fellows and Family Lawyers from around the world may be interested in attending the 8th Family Law & Children’s Rights Conference, to be held virtually from 11th - 16th July 2021 and, for the first time, jointly organised by the World Congress on Family Law and Children’s Rights and LAWASIA, The Law Association for Asia and the Pacific.
The Conference is a major international event focussing on family law and family law processes and the rights of children and youth. The Conference is a platform for the convergence of lawyers, judges, academics, government, non-government associations, psychologists, medical professionals and social scientists with a common interest in the active protection of children and in sharing best practices to promote the rights of children and family law issues. The Conference offers an opportunity for delegates to challenge existing protocols and to formulate resolutions on the rights of the child, not only in their own jurisdiction but to provide support for those endeavouring to change laws relating to the denial of human rights for children globally.
Due to the ongoing concerns and the unprecedented escalation and spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and the travel bans and restrictions issued by many governments in Asia and the Pacific region, the Conference Organising Committee has made the difficult decision to hold the conference virtually, rather than in Singapore.
In view of the changed arrangements registration fees will be refunded to all those who have registered. Refunds will be processed to the original form of payment and you will receive a receipt via email once the refund is finalised. New arrangements for registration for the virtual conference will be advised shortly.
