Hello Texas collaborative attorneys!
I am the chair of the Collaborative Law Section of the State Bar of Texas this year, and on behalf of the entire CL Section Council, welcome to the 2020-2021 year!
Your council has been hard at work planning several initiatives this year, including more member benefits for YOU. This year you can expect to receive newsletters and email announcements containing informational articles and training opportunities. The council is also planning to produce broad-interest collaborative law webinars for CLE credit, FREE for members.
And finally, the council is working on ways to leverage our collaborative training, toolbox, and mindset in non-traditional settings, in order to broaden our market both in family conflict settings, and in a civil context. You might think of it as “expansion collaborative by stealth.”
If you have something to contribute, talent or time, please contact me.
This will be a great year to be a member in the Collaborative Law Section! I’ll see you soon.
Laura R. Schlenker, Chair
Collaborative Law Section
State Bar of Texas
