2022 marks Family Lawyer Magazine’s tenth anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, we decided to focus on thought leadership – highlighting changes in the culture and practice of family law over the last 10 years, and shedding light on what the future may hold.
To create the Thought Leadership Interview Series, Family Lawyer Magazine’s Editorial Director Diana Shepherd and Publisher Dan Couvrette are recording video interviews and podcasts with thought leaders in family law.
For the tenth anniversary edition of the magazine, we also invited one of our Advisory Board members, Sharon Klein, to conduct a Roundtable with past and current AAML presidents to discuss advancements in family law.
Here are links to the current interviews (below); watch this page for more videos and podcasts over the next few weeks and months.
