This learning event is right for you if you are in a position at school where you are required to make decisions covered by family law


This seminar will cover the family law landscape including:

  • parents’ rights and family court powers
  • common documents relevant to family law
  • schools' rights to intervene in “bad” behaviour affecting student safety and wellbeing
  • complex family arrangements such as  preparing for school pick-up, parent requests to exclude the other parent or new partner from school or information, re-jigging enrolment agreements without compromising school fee recovery.

Before the seminar, registrants will be invited to submit examples of scenarios that they face when dealing with family disputes.

Schools often find themselves in a situation where they are being asked by a parent to make a decision which is covered by family law. While this seminar will not replace the need to seek legal advice at times, it will provide schools with an understanding of parents' rights in this area.

Key takeaways              

  • an understanding of the family law landscape, parents’ rights and family court powers
  • the ability to manage complex family arrangements as they affect school operations
  • an understanding of the implications of various legal documents.
