BarTalk | December 2012

  • December 01, 2012

The times – they are a changing for families and family lawyers. The FLA cuts across many areas of law, so we devote most of this issue to it. Also enjoy questions of Biblical proportion about how Abraham’s heirs would do under our inheritance laws, learn to speak more convincingly than a politician and read of CBABC contributions to the Uniform Law Conference.
