Alexandra Tribe is speaker at Resolution’s annual conference
Alexandra Tribe sits on Resolution’s international family law committee, made up of a group of international family lawyers from England and abroad. The committee ran a workshop at Resolution’s annual family law conference, this year held at the Metropole hotel in Brighton, to train and update lawyers on recent developments in international family law.
Alexandra was a speaker at the conference, addressing delegates on international family law matters. The conference attracted 500 family lawyers from across the country.
Resolution, which was formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association (SFLA), is an organisation of 6,500 family lawyers and other professionals in England and Wales, who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. Resolution also campaigns for improvements to the family justice system.
Resolution supports the development of family lawyers through its national and regional training programmes, through publications and good practice guides and through its accreditation scheme. Resolution also trains and accredits mediators and is the only body providing training and support for collaborative lawyers in England and Wales.
The cornerstone of membership of Resolution is adherence to the Code of Practice, which sets out the principles of a non-confrontational approach to family law matters. The principles of the code are widely recognised and have been adopted by the Law Society as recommended good practice for all family lawyers.
The code requires lawyers to deal with each other in a civilised way and to encourage their clients to put their differences aside and reach fair agreements.
