Welcome to the Collaborative Academy

The Collaborative Academy is the Training and Continuing Education portal for the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin. The Academy was created to help new CFLCW members and practitioners  learn from each other and interact with experienced practitioner mentors.

The Collaborative Academy is also the second step in your collaborative training. Five times during the year, Collaborative Academy members will participate in a 60-minute webinar led by experienced CFLCW members on practice tips and issues that arise in the Collaborative Process. Each topic has been formulated by those who have experience in the collaborative process.

2018 graduates of Building Blocks are automatically enrolled in the Collaborative Academy. All CFLCW members may attend!


Here are dates for the 2018-2019 series of webinars beginning at 12 Noon:

September 20, 2018: Burning Questions from Building Blocks/Talking to Clients About Collaborative
November 15, 2018: Collaborative Process/Team Communication
January 17, 2019: What We Wished We Would Have Known
March 21, 2019: Principals and Guidelines for Collaborative Team Members
