Training and learning: The future of family practice

26 May 2021

Edward Cooke is a regular contributor to Resolution’s The Review and in his latest piece he explores the changing landscape of training and learning needs for the legal professional. Changes have arisen not only from the pandemic but also from other developments in family practice.

As Chair of Resolution’s Training and Learning Committee, Edward Cooke and the Resolution team have a keen eye on the challenges and opportunities this new working landscape has precipitated. 

The article outlines that the skills required to support clients in achieving the best possible outcomes from a digital divorce are not now merely legal, but also multi-faceted, requiring professionals to adapt and up-skill quickly. 

Edward showcases Resolution’s approach to tackling skills training throughout the profession, helping them to adapt to and develop the essential skills required in a fast-changing world. There is also a focus on Resolution’s response to the recommendations arising from the recent report published by the Family Solutions Group around improvements to the family justice system, including skills training, and recognising the acute challenge junior professionals have faced during the pandemic.
