The evolving role of the family lawyer: the impact of collaborative law on family law practice [2011] CFLQ 370

Collaborative law is a relatively recent development within family law practice. This new process is claimed to build on the strengths and overcome the weaknesses of both family mediation and conventional solicitor negotiation. Drawing on data from a small scale qualitative study, this article considers how this new mode of family law practice might change the role of the family lawyer and highlights some of the tensions which may arise as practitioners adapt to it when resolving the financial and property disputes arising on divorce/separation.
