Barcelona Spain and Georgia USA

Joint Family Law Conference and Networking Exchange

October 16 – 20, 2022

Join us in the beautiful city of Barcelona Spain for this joint educational and networking program for Georgia and Barcelona family law attorneys, hosted and sponsored by the Barcelona Bar Association, Il·lustre Col·legi de l’Advocacia de Barcelona (ICAB) and mdg Custody Litigation Consulting.

… so much we can learn from others…

Family law has become globalized, extending beyond national borders. Families are a mix of cultures, and are more transient than ever.

The purpose of this program is to expand our knowledge by taking a comparative approach as to how family law cases are handled in other jurisdictions around the world.

Viewing family law through a comparative lens helps us gain a better perspective of our own laws by expanding our horizons with insight and ideas from other cultures.

The program is designed to facilitate active engagement with our Barcelona hosts to share experiences, ideas and philosophies.

Such meaningful exchanges will foster a dialogue that will be beneficial to both Georgia and Barcelona attorneys.

This is not just continuing legal education…

This is a continuing legal experience!

… and create memories of a lifetime!
