The Family Law Organizer (FLO for short) is an online community of over 400 BC family law professionals, run by a volunteer steering committee, and hosted on Courthouse Libraries BC’s online community platform www.lawbster.net. FLO is a community for family law professionals to engage in the free exchange of knowledge. (Read more about FLO and Lawbster.)
On November 2, 2020, FLO’s steering committee announced it will be launching an online discussion group for eligible FLO members. The new working group is called FLAP – short for Family Law And Procedure. Pre-registration for the new forum is now underway (see link below).
Kelowna family lawyer Briana Hardwick, on behalf of the FLO steering committee, writes:
We are very excited to announce the launch of the new Family Law and Procedure Working Group (“FLAP”). FLAP is an online discussion group for family lawyers and paralegals to share information and ask questions regarding family law issues. It is also an opportunity to connect with other family law practitioners. The scope of the matters intended to be addressed in the FLAP working group include:
- case law,
- legal procedure,
- the conduct of family law files,
- referrals, and
The new forum will be led by Angela Dunn and Jesse Desilets, two family lawyers in British Columbia, along with other members of the FLO steering committee. The FLAP forum will go live when it has a minimum of 40 family lawyers and paralegals pre-registered. There is no cost to join FLO or FLAP.
