Family Law Barrister's Webinar on Private Law Fact Finding Hearings & Schedules

This concise webinar, link below, delivered by Trinity Family Law Barrister Claire Brissenden and Pupil, Jack Cottrell explores private law fact finding hearings.

As well as providing practical tips for statements and schedules, the session covers:

  • What is a Fact Finding hearing?
  • Why do we have Fact Finding hearings?
  • Why do we need a Scott Schedule and what is it?
  • Choosing allegations 

As a follow up to this webinar there will be a succinct, live and interactive follow-up workshop delivered online by Claire and Jack starting at 7.30pm on the evening of Wednesday 24th June 2020.

The session aims to put into practice the topics discussed in the first webinar. Using the example sheets you will be sent (which will also include a summary of everything from the first webinar) you will be asked to choose your best 10 allegations from the examples, and give reasons why you chose the ones you did and not the ones you didn’t. During the webinar you will be put into small groups in breakout rooms for approximately 5 minutes to discuss the allegations with others, and then we will get back together to talk about which ones you have chosen and why.

This second webinar will be an opportunity to meet other legal professionals from around the country, and share experiences of best practice, as well as learn from others.

Places are limited for the second live follow up webinar, so to register your interest in attending please email
