Saturday AM Workshop #10 Regulating Legal Proceedings in Family Conflicts - a law inspired by CD

In July 2016, an innovative law for regulating legal proceedings in family conflicts was applied in Israel. While drafted to deal with local religious issues, the legislation sparked an intense debate regarding the “Prohibition of the right to litigation” family disputes without first exploring options to litigation. A year after the implementation of this new law the number of claims filed to the family courts in Israel were reduced by more than 50%. In the workshop, Michal Fein (who co-authored this new law) will share her point of view on how it became a reality and how it was inspired by the Collaborative Divorce process.
