Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

The landscape of relationship property is ever-changing as relationships and property structures become increasingly complex. It is important for practitioners to be aware of these developments.

This module will consider recent developments in the area of relationship property, including:

  • A practical guide to applying the principles set out in the recent Supreme Court decision of Scott v Williams to your client’s advantage
  • Developments arising in discovery and interim distributions in light of the Court of Appeal decision in Biggs v Biggs, and
  • The increasing acceptance by the courts of the application of s 13 (extraordinary circumstances) following separation in “later in life” relationships.

This is an engaging and constantly evolving area of the law. Attending this webinar will help ensure that you are able to provide your clients with robust advice on these issues.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.

  • Understand what practical strategies to use from Scott v Williams in assesing economic disparity.
  • Recognise the extent of discovery that is appropriate in the relationship property context.
