Welcome message from our Chairperson

On behalf of the Executive Committee and Members of the Family Lawyers Association Ireland, we would like to welcome you to our website and invite you to join the FLA. Our aim is to support family law practitioners throughout Ireland by promoting the highest standards of practice in family law, providing opportunities for further education and advocating for law reform.

The Executive Committee has an exciting series of events planned for the coming year. We are pleased to continue our ever popular Breakfast Briefing and Afternoon Webinar Series where you can pick up CPD points. We are delighted to be hosting the upcoming Five Jurisdictions Conference in Dublin from 27th to 29th May 2022 followed by the Circuit Conference which will take place on 17th October 2022 (organised by the most able Alexis Mina BL). We will also host a Charity Event on 25th June 2022 and our Summer Party on 21st July 2022 in The Sheds, Distillery Building, Dublin.

This is an Association of family lawyers for family lawyers and we appreciate hearing your views and suggestions. If you have anything you wish to raise with the Association, please email the Executive Committee at
We welcome all new members, whether as full members or associate members. Our Hon. Treasurer, Graham Hanlon, or any members of the Committee, will be pleased to help you with any queries you may have.
