Original Program: May 3-4, 2019

Available formats


Mechanics (Greek μηχανική) is that area of science concerned with the behavior of physical bodies when subjected to forces or displacements and the subsequent effects of the bodies on their environment.

Divorce (North Carolina διαζύγιο) is that area of law concerned with the behavior of physical couples subjected to displacement, and the subsequent legal effects of that displacement upon their surrounding environment (i.e., their kids).

At this program we explore the mechanics of family law, with an emphasis on practical application. The format of this entire program is "top 10 tips" on a particular topic area. Our speakers show us how to deal with third parties in litigation, how to properly admit evidence at trial, how to enforce orders once trial is over and how to avoid trial entirely by utilizing arbitration.

This program also includes case law updates, an ethics/professionalism hour and an hour of technology training to satisfy the new CLE requirement.

Planned by the NCBA Family Law Section

Satisfies NC State Bar Technology Training requirement
