Chile - Quality in the defence of family trials

Daniel Horvitz Lennon

The creation of the new Family Courts in the year 2004, and the subsequent implementation of the oral procedure, left in evidence a big shortcoming in the preparation of lawyers, both in substantial matter as in procedural skills.

In contrast to the implementation of the new penal process, which was anticipated and prepared with years of advance to its effective date, and in which diverse universities had the time (and interest) to prepare their students in every aspect regarding the Reform, the implementation of the family reform was carried out without - prior to it - the existence of training courses.

As in any other oral procedure, family procedure requires special knowledge and skills, which to the date have been developed by lawyers mainly through practice and the personal study.
