The Power & Challenge of Teams in Collaborative Law, Nov. 17

New to the ICLEF curriculum! Whether formally trained in collaborative law or looking to learn more, this will be a wonderful forum to explore the process…

Our faculty includes internationally recognized collaborative law educators Nancy Cameron and Yuval Berger leading a day-long workshop environment that will address the collaborative team process.


Collaborative Practice involves working in teams, whether it is a team of two collaborative lawyers and two clients or a full interdisciplinary collaborative team working with two clients. In this one day workshop, we will explore the strength of teams, the importance of the team’s cohesiveness when working with conflict, and how to have productive conversations with your clients about involving an interdisciplinary team. As we strengthen our team practice and take on more challenging cases, team challenges are inevitable. This day will also give you an opportunity to work with some of the more challenging aspects of teamwork, to learn about the characteristics of the most successful teams and help build strategies to take home to your practice.

We will explore how:
* we inevitably bring our own values & professional identity needs into our work with colleagues and the impact this may have on the team:
*  to begin cases with team mates in ways that will maximize the chance for successful outcomes;
*  to keep our focus on the children when we have an allegiance to one of the parents;
*  to protect against splitting and becoming positional in the team, and strategies to address a split in the team after it has already occurred to build strategies to talk with a colleague whose behavior we feel is misguided, or even unethical;
*  to handle the tension of making space to give voice to our client’s concerns while at the same time protecting our relationship with each of the team members; and
*  to address a behavior by one of the team members, who may be our friend a well as our professional colleague, which undermines the ‘team spirit’.
